  • If you are in the ski shop turn the pole upside down, hold underneath the basket and check that the elbow is at a right angle (90º).

  • If poles are too short when skiing you will be out of balance forward when you pole to turn.

  • If the poles are too long you will have to lean back to compensate and you will be pushed onto the tails of the skis.

  • Ski poles increase in length in increments of 5 cm. Most ski poles can be cut down (shortened).

  • Cost of ski poles is relative to quality of alloy and fibers used.
