The Absolute Guide To The Perfect Ski Size

The general rule is to pick a ski length that is somewhere between your chin and the top of your head. Advanced and expert skiers may choose skis that are slightly longer than head height and beginners may want to go slightly shorter.

When your ready you can follow this link back to our Ski range and apply the filters on the left hand side of the page see Skis that are right for you.

Factors To Consider In Choosing Your Ski Length

Factors such as height and weight provide an excellent starting point but there are other things to consider. Ski category, snow type, terrain and personal preference are just some of the things to take into account.

Our size chart below is a good general guide to use as a starting point, so check this out first and then apply these simple rules:

Pick skis slightly shorter if you answer 'yes' to any of the following statements:

●You are a beginner or improving skier

●You are lighter than average for your height

●You like to make short, quick turns and rarely ski really fast

●You want a pure carving ski with no rocker.

Pick skis slightly longer if you answer 'yes' to any of the following statements:

●You like to ski fast and aggressively

●You are heavier than average for your height

●You plan to do a lot of off piste skiing

●You plan to use a twin-tip ski or plan to hit a lot of big kickers

●You want a ski that has a lot of rocker

●You are an advanced skier

Then just go to our Skis page and narrow your search by using the filters on the left hand side of the page. Add filters for your weight and length of skis (by using the table below) and you will have a good indication of the skis that will be well sized for you.
