The general rule is to pick a ski length that is going to land somewhere between your chin and the top of your head. Advanced and expert women skiers may choose skis that are slightly taller than their height. Within your size range, there are multiple reasons to choose a shorter or longer women’s ski.
Once you have your base size any ski 3 cm shorter or longer falls into your ideal ski length range. For example if your final size is 177cm, 174-180 cm is your ideal range. If height is less than 5’2″ and weight is greater than 150lbs start with a base length of 159cm
And don’t worry, rather than forcing you to rely on a separate women’s ski size chart and men’s ski size chart, we’ve condensed all the important information into a simple all-purpose ski size chart. Men’s skis tend to run slightly longer and heavier, but much of it comes down to personal preference.
