Choosing the right length

Ski poles for back country use will usually have to be approximately 35-40cm shorter than your own height, as a thumb of rule. Another way to measure, is to pick a pole that is around length from your armpit to the ground or 5cm shorter whilst standing upright.

Skill, experience, use and personal preferences will also influence your choice of length. But be sure to not choose your poles too long, as that hinders blood circulation in the arms, makes it uncomfortable and gives you cold fingers while skiing in cold weather. All in all, it is about personal preferences.
