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.

NON-FIS Race Ski Sizing Guidelines

Approx. Ski Length (cm)
45 - 48 114 - 122 100 - 115
49 - 52 125 - 132 110 - 125
53 - 56 135 - 142 120 - 135
57 - 60 145 - 152 130 - 145
61 - 64 155 - 163 140 - 155
65 - 68 165 - 173 150 - 165
69 - 72 175 - 183 160 - 175
73 - 76 185 - 193 170 - 185

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

LINE CONTROL TECHNOLOGY (LCT)

An evolution of World Cup racing innovation, Rossignol’s patented new LCT construction harnesses pure power and energy, delivering fluid stability in all conditions. Featuring a central “power rail” integrated from tip-to-tail, LCT eliminates counter-flexing of the ski to ensure consistently smooth stability and dynamic control of your line.

SEMI-TITANAL CONSTRUCTION

TITANAL laminates optimize dampening, stability, and torsional rigidity for maximum power, precision, and downhill performance.

MINICAP RECTANGULAR SIDEWALL

Construction features a horizontal layering of core materials (wood, fiberglass, metal, etc.), and full-length vertical sidewalls with slight topsheet bevel toward the edge for increased durability.

POPLAR WOOD CORE

Provides a good balance of weight, dampening ability, and elasticity for a versatile blend of power, agility, and playfulness.

OVERSIZED SIDECUT

Ski profile is narrower through the contact point with more flare in the tip than the tail. Provides full edge length grip and power through the turn, quick turn initiation, snappy boost while exiting the turn and quick edge to edge action.

ON TRAIL ROCKER

Traditional high camber through 90% of the ski's length delivers power and edge grip for explosive snap and boost. The subtle rocker tip over the remaining 10% allows easier turn initiation easier and control.
