There are varying opinions on how to best size skis, but the general rule for modern ski length is between the skier's chin to the top of the head, depending on the type of skiing and the ability of the user. The guidelines below are for race skis and start with the athlete's height, which you add or subtract length based on discipline, gender, weight, age, and ability of the racer. These are loose guides and you should consult your local coach or ski expert for more specific recommendations.

FIS Race Ski Sizing Guidelines

FIS regulations change frequently, so it is best to consult with your coach or local ski expert before making a final purchase. Please see the current USSA/FIS Equipment Rules for specific age and circuit rules.

Non-FIS Race Ski Sizing Recommendations

Slalom (SL) skis are generally measured between the chin and nose. Giant Slalom (GS) are generally a bit longer and are measured between the nose and top of the head. Lighter weight and less experienced skiers may want to go with a ski that is a bit shorter than the chart below. The opposite is applied to heavier or more aggressive ski racers and you may want to go a bit longer. Again these are only loose recommendations and you should consult with your local ski expert for more specific advice.

Sizing Considerations:

  1. Consult FIS, USSA, and other level appropriate regulations.

  2. Racer's height to weight ratio - a heavier racer may need a longer ski.
  3. Racer's ability level and preference - more advanced skiers can generally handle longer length skis which can be more stable at higher speeds.
  4. Growth of the athlete - you may want to consider sizing up a little if you want to get multiple years out of a younger racer's skis, although most coaches agree that skiing on a slightly shorter ski the second year is preferable to skiing on a ski that is too long.
  5. Coach's recommendations.

Technical Info

Full Sidewall

Runs the full length of the ski for precise steering, ideal for high-performing race and piste skis.

FULL CAP

A construction with no sidewall where the top sheet folds down over the edges, making it easy to handle.

POWER WOODCORE

A combination of hard ash and light poplar that’s stable and sporty for our high performance skis.

TITANIUM POWERED

A titanium layer above and below the core creates supreme shock absorption, strong running stability and a high torsional flex.

PISTE ROCKER

Perfect edge grip in even the hardest snow conditions. When edged up the ski delivers full contact length. While, the slight rise of the tip when weighted allows for easy turning and no edge catching.
