DOWNHILL SKI SIZE GUIDE

 

There are a couple of basic rules when it comes to choosing the right ski length. In general, a ski should have a length such that when you place its tail on the ground the tip should come between the top of your shoulder and your eyes. Shaped skis can run at shorter lengths then old traditional skis. As a general rule, it's better to go shorter when unable to decide. Shorter skis allow for easy maneuverability, turn initiation and exit, power transfer and technique.

Consider your weight, height, skill level, terrain, the shape and flex of the skis when choosing the size of the skis. The below size charts are just as a general guideline to better help you choose the right pair of the skis. However we always suggest checking the manufacturer’s size charts as well and consulting with sales associate to help with your final selection.
