How to Size Ski Poles

How do you determine what length of ski pole is best for you? The chart on this page can be used as a general guide and is based on your height. The most common "old time" method is to invert the pole with the grip on the floor and grab the shaft under the basket. The pole is a good fit if your forearm is at 90 degrees (or parallel to the floor).

This is a good starting point, but personal preference may dictate a slightly shorter pole in modern day slalom where racers attack in a little lower body position and the pole plant becomes awkward if the pole is too long.

GS/SG and DH poles are typically longer for a stronger push out of the start and pole planting is not an issue.

Select a longer pole if in doubt as most shafts can be cut down to size. Note: Cutting down GS/SG and DH poles is a bit more complicated due to the bend of the pole. They may be cut down some, but keep in mind the placement of the bend relative to the body while in a tuck, before making this decision. It may seem obvious to some, but always cut from the top of the pole with the grip removed.
