How to Choose the Correct Length / Size Ski Poles

The length of a ski pole can affect the way you ski so it is important to choose the correct size.  Poles that are too long or too heavy can be cumbersome and awkward whereas poles which are too short might not provide you with the right balance and hinder your ability to turn. Use our size chart then make minor adjustments depending on your type of skiing: 

Ski with longer poles if:

● You like to plant your pole and turn round it, great for moguls and bumps

● You will be skating or traversing flat tracks

Ski with shorter poles if:

● You will be skiing a lot of deep snow

● You will be skiing a lot of park
