On average, your skis should fall somewhere between your chin and forehead when held upright. There are a few additional details that play a significant role in determining which ski size is best fit for you. After consulting the size chart, be sure to consider your weight, skill level, skiing style and the type of terrain you’ll be frequenting.

Here are some reasons for sizing up or down:

Weight

  • Size up if you are closer to the high end of your weight range or above average weight for your height.
  • Size down if you are closer to the low end of your weight range or below average weight for your height.

Skill Level and Style

  • Size up if you are an advanced/expert skier who prefers to be fast and aggressive in style.
    • Longer skis tend to have a more stable feel.
  • Size down if you are a beginner/intermediate skier who prefers skiing at a more leisurely pace with quick turns.
    • Shorter skis offer higher overall manoeuverability.

Terrain

  • Size up if you love to explore the backcountry. Most off-piste skiers lean towards longer skis.
  • Size down if you prefer carving your way down a well-groomed mountain or hard pack snow.
