How Do You Size Ski Poles? [Fact Checked!]

Spread the love

Last season I went on a dream trip to ski Canada in gorgeous Jasper. Not only is the scenery and the nightlife incredible, but the snowfall is beautiful and untainted by the heat of the day. Unfortunately, my knee surgery a few months prior to the trip put a stop to all my outdoor activities – including skiing. It also meant I had to scale back my adventure plans; instead of dreaming of skiing the whole country, I would be content with making the most of the Canadian Rockies whenever I could.

Is there anything more Canadian than winter sport and maple syrup? It might just be the culture of apres-ski, where you can get a beer and a bowl of popcorn and continue your party on the mountain. In this article, we will discuss sizing ski poles for different snow conditions and usage based on your experience.

Know Your Limitations

Before we begin, it is essential to note that your surgeon will have given you a list of limitations to work within. These are things like how high you can ski and how fast you can ski. In addition, you should research the weight limits for the equipment you are using, as excessive weight can lead to injury or damage. To give you the best possible experience, your surgeon will have advised you on what equipment is suitable for your body shape and size. They will also have recommended the right skills for you to have the best possible experience.

Based on your physical limitations, you can determine how much weight you should be carrying and how much you should use. For example, if you cannot lift your knees very high, you should avoid climbing too hard with heavy loads or using fast speeds. You will find that the less weight you are carrying, the faster you will go. On the other hand, if you have no problems with climbing high and fast, you can carry more weight. You should also experiment with various poles to find out which one is best suited for your body shape and size, as this will affect both your skiing and touring experience. If you are curious, ask your ski shop staff for help – they will be able to point you in the right direction.

Short Versus Long

One of the first things you will learn when you begin skiing is that short is beautiful. When it comes to the ski height requirement, there is no exact measurement. A general guideline would be that you should stand with your heel at the front of the ski and look like you are doing a pull down. If you meet the right height requirement, you will be able to enjoy the skiing experience without feeling out of place. However, if you are too short, you will feel insecure and this could affect your overall enjoyment of the activity. Do not worry; there are plenty of opportunities for you to enjoy the sport. Just make sure you are doing it the right way.

Adjustable Versus Non-Adjustable

Do you mind when your ski boots touch the snow? This is a common question when it comes to ski equipment and is something that you need to ask yourself. If the answer is no, then you should opt for the non-adjustable boot. These boots do not come off, which means you will be able to modify the fit as it is. The only downside is that you will not be able to take them on and off easily when the situation requires it. Many ski racers prefer this kind of boot, as it does not move around, which makes modulating the fit easier. If you are not sure whether or not you mind when your ski boots touch the snow, try out both styles and see which one you prefer. If you find that you have to take your boots off and on frequently during the day, then you should opt for the adjustable boot. This kind of boot is usually thicker and has a textured surface on top to improve your grip on the snow while you are skiing. If you are not sure which one to get, ask your ski shop staff for help – they will be able to make the right recommendations for you.

Biker Versus Skier

This is probably the most important question when it comes to picking your equipment. Do you want to enjoy the experience of a biker life on the slopes or are you looking for a more refined experience? The answer depends on the type of skier you want to be. If you are looking for a fast, furious, thrill-seeking experience, then you should opt for the biker life. However, if you want to focus more on the elegance of the sport and the thrill of standing on the top of a white peak, then you should go for the more refined experience and get yourself some ski poles. Do not be afraid to step out of your comfort zone, as this will only make the experience that much better. Do not worry, the professionals at your local ski shop will be able to help you find the right equipment for your experiences.
