What Length Should My Skis Be?
Your skis should be the right size for your height, weight and skiing style & ability. There is no magic formula for determining the right size ski for you. In general, the proper ski length is somewhere between your chin and the top of your head. For example, a skier that is 6’ tall will want to look for skis between 170cm and 190cm. The exact right size for you will depend on your skiing ability and style.
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. Beginner skiers, for example, will want to choose shorter skis, while longer skis are more appropriate for advanced skiers.
