Ski Pole Buyers Guide


Buying a correctly sized ski pole is important. Skiing with the wrong size can offset your balance & lead to poor technique.

Here’s a guide to size yourself up for the right length of ski pole.

1. Place your arms at your sides and hold your forearm out at a 90 degree angle (as if you were carrying a box).

2. Make sure that your upper arms are touching your sides, and your forearms are out in front of you, as if you were holding ski poles.

3. Make a fist as if you were gripping imaginary ski poles & raise your thumb into the “thumbs up” position.

4. Have a friend measure the distance from the top of your thumb to the floor.

5. If you don’t have someone to measure this distance for you, stand next to a wall & lightly mark the spot where the top of your thumb is. Then, measure from that mark to the floor.

6. Round this length either up or down to your preference.
