How to find the right length for your mountain BC skis?

Length is determined based on body length and weight. These tables are intended as an aid and must not be followed slavishly. Skills, terrain, weight, use of a backpack and individual needs/habits/preferences are factors that influence the choice of length.
Considering all these factors, as well as the use of short-, and long skins, traditional measurement of flex and camber when picking skis is not transmissible when choosing the right mountain-ski.

General advice: Skiing rough terrain requires shorter skis than open mountain areas. For beginners, it will often be easier with short skis. If the person is lighter than average, the user should consider shorter skis, and vice versa. If you often carry with you a heavy load (pulk/sledge), the ski should be a bit longer.

Wider skis:

As a thumb of rule, the widest skis like Kongsvold, Falketing 62 and Rabb 68 can be chosen arounnd +/- 5-10cm longer than body length.
