Ski Size Charts

When purchasing Skis or Poles, check the sizes below first. It is very important that they fit your weight and height, otherwise you may be throwing your $$ away!

Do not purchase classic or skate skis without doing a paper test to make sure they are correct for your weight. This is VERY important. You can not purchase skis by length alone.
