Described in the direction of travel, the front of the ski, typically pointed or rounded, is the tip, the middle is the waist and the rear is the tail. Skis have four aspects that define their basic performance: length, width, sidecut, and camber. Skis also differ in more minor ways to address certain niche roles. For instance, mogul skis are softer to absorb shocks, powder skis are wider to provide more float and rocker skis bent upwards (reverse camber) at the tip and tail to make it easier to turn in the deep and heavy snow.
The truth is that there is no one perfect size ski for one skier. Factors such as height and weight provide an excellent starting point but there are other things to consider. Ski category, snow type, terrain, and personal preference are just some of the things to take into account. The general rule is to pick a ski length that is somewhere between your chin and the top of your head. Advanced and expert skiers may choose skis that are slightly longer than head height.
Reasons to size your skis shorter, closer to your chin:
• You are a beginner or intermediate skier.
• Your weight is lighter than average for your height.
• You like to make short, quick turns and seldom ski fast.
• You want a carving ski with only camber, no rocker.
Reasons to size your skis longer, closer to the top of your head:
• You are skiing fast and aggressively.
• You weigh more than average for your height.
• You plan to do the majority of your skiing off the trail.
• You plan to ski a twin-tip ski.
• You want a ski that has a lot of rockers.
Kids Ski Size Chart
Youth skis should come up somewhere between the child's chest and nose. Height and weight are both important determinants in selecting the correct size skis for kids. Need a starting point? Use the Kids' Ski Size Chart below.
To find the correct size skis:
<![if !supportLists]>1. <![endif]>Measure your child's height and weight.
2. Locate that height on the chart below.
3. Your child might be between two of the heights listed; in that case, find their weight on the chart. If they are light for their height, you're going to size a ski to the shorter height, and therefore will end up with shorter skis. If they are heavy for their height, you'll go off the taller height and end up with longer skis.
4. Line up this final height with the corresponding ski length in the right column to get the correct ski size range. Below the chart, we have put together reasons to size up or down within this range.
Ski design has evolved enormously since the beginnings of the modern sport in mid-19th-century Norway. Modern skis typically have steel edges, camber, sidecut, and possibly reverse camber. During the 1990s side cut became more pronounced to make it easier to carve turns. Alpine skis typically have fixed-heel bindings. Specialized types of alpine skis exist for certain uses, including twin-tip skis for freestyle skiing, alpine touring ski, and monoski.
