Picking the correct ski size?

There is no one size for one height and weight. The general rule is to pick a ski that is going to land somewhere between your chin and the top of your head. Within your size range there are multiple reasons to choose a shorter or longer ski.

Reasons for Shorter Ski’s, closer to your chin:

  • beginner or intermediate skier
  • Your weight is lighter than average for your height
  • You like to make short, quick turns

Reasons to size your skis longer, closer to the top of your head:

  • skiing fast and aggressively
  • You weigh more than average for your height
  • The majority of your skiing off the trail
  • Skis have significant rocker in the tip

A shorter ski will be easier to turn yet not as stable as a longer ski. A carving ski with a skinnier waist and a smaller turn radius can be skied at a shorter length than an all mountain or a freeride ski with larger, longer turn radius and fatter waist width.

A broad, beveled tip with 10% more surface area for floatation and decreased tip deflection in chop.

The poplar and Caruba woodcore create a balance of low weight and optimum performance.

An ultra-lightweight carbon insert that runs the length of the ski like a stabilizing backbone.

Fiberglass layers create a ski that is smooth and stable while remaining lightweight and dynamic.

Sidewall from base to top sheet for great edge grip, with a rounded shape for increased durability.
