Alpine Ski Sizing Chart

Choosing the right size ski can be daunting and confusing. There are many factors in determining the perfect ski suitable for your physically characteristics, experience and environment.

The ski length is mainly determined by: weight, physical ability, skier height and the ability of the skier.

Less experienced skiers should choose a smaller size, while more experienced skiers may want to go up a size.

The general rule is to pick a ski that where the height finishes between the floor to your chin and the top of your head.

Expert skiers may choose skis that are slightly taller than their height while beginner skiers will choose a much smaller ski.

What are the best length skis for me?

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.
