We’ve all been there – standing in a ski rental shop, unsure of what ski size is right for us. Or maybe you’re considering buying your first pair of skis but are feeling overwhelmed by the choices. Well, stress no more! We’ve created a simple tool to help you find your ideal ski size: our brand new Ski Size Calculator!
To ease this process, we’ve enhanced our Ski Size Calculator. Now, it takes into account not only your height and skill level but also your weight, skiing style, and the type of skiing you prefer!
- How It Works
Our updated Ski Size Calculator uses more precise inputs to recommend a ski length suitable for you. Remember, while our calculator is a great starting point, it’s always best to consult with an expert or try different skis to find what feels most comfortable for you.

Inputs You’ll Need
Using the Ski Size Calculator is easy. You just need to provide:
- Your Height: Your height is a major determinant of ski length.
- Your Weight: Heavier skiers typically need longer skis for better support and control.
- Your Skill Level: Choose between Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced. Beginner skiers often benefit from shorter skis, while advanced skiers may prefer longer ones for better control at high speeds.
- Skiing Style: Are you cautious, average, or aggressive on the slopes? Your skiing style can influence the optimal ski length for you.
- Type of Skiing: Different skiing types such as downhill, freestyle, or cross-country may require different ski lengths.
How the Calculation Works
The Ski Size Calculator starts with your height as the base for the ski length. From there, it adjusts based on your weight, skiing style, and type of skiing.
For example, if you weigh over 90 kg, it adds 5cm to the ski length. Aggressive skiers get an additional 5cm, while freestyle skiers might need a reduction of 5cm. It also makes adjustments based on your skill level: subtracting 10cm for beginners, no change for intermediates, and adding 10cm for advanced skiers.
