Dyatlov group had at least 18 ski poles.
We can see only 4 ski poles on the photo of the tent.
We can read about one broken ski pole inside the tent at page 315 (vol.1) of case files.

And where are other ski poles?
The crime case files doesn't answer this question.

The ski poles were reported to be used as probes early in the search , this is possibly why we see in other pictures of the tent that the ski rings are lying on the snow without poles. In later years by other searcher's , ski rings and pins were found so some have concluded the tents location by those finds.

Depending on what you believe, the initial search was a search and rescue and not a murder case.
