FAQ

What ski size should I get?

The truth is that there is no perfect size for one height and weight. The general rule is to pick a ski that is going to land somewhere between your chin and the top of your head.



Pro and expert skiers may choose skis that are slightly taller than their height. Within your size range there are multiple reasons to choose a shorter or longer ski.

1. Reasons to size your skis shorter/closer to your chin
- You are a beginner or intermediate skier
- Your weight is lighter than average for your height
- You like to make short, quick turns

2. Reasons to size your skis longer/closer to the top of your head
- You are skiing fast and aggressively
- You weigh more than average for your height
- You plan to do the majority of your skiing off the trail
- You are purchasing a ski with significant rocker in the tip
- If you prefer a quicker turning ski subtract 5cm.
- If you want to spin to win subtract 5cm.

Kids Ski Sizing

Height and weight are both important determinants in selecting the correct size skis for kids. A good rule of thumb is that youth skis should come up somewhere between the child's chest and nose.

If your child is between two sizes go shorter if they are lighter, and longer if they are heavier.

Reasons to size kids' skis shorter, closer to the chest:
- They are a beginner or cautious skier.
- Their weight is lighter than average for their height.
- They like to make short, quick turns and seldom ski fast.

​Reasons to size kids' skis longer, closer to the nose:
- They are skiing fast and aggressively.
- They weigh more than average for their height.

You want to purchase a ski with room to grow. Children grow fast and there are boots and outerwear designed to accommodate this, however, we do not recommend sizing skis much bigger than the recommended range as it can become dangerous.

What Size Poles Should I Buy?

There are different recommendations for different snow:

Hardpack carving
- Elbow should bend in a 90 degree angle

Deep snow
- Use powder baskets
- More of a steep angle, elbow should not bend quite 90 degrees
- Helps to get down with the deep snow and not have to pull your arm up too much

Park
- Shorter poles
- Nearly cannot reach the ground
- Swing weight - poles are closer to your body and it is advantageous for skiing switch
