Cross-country ski length for kids
Adult ski sizes can be determined by overall body size. Check out the Fischer Product Finder for help, if you need. The Product Finder will also help you zero in on exactly the size and type of skis children and juniors need.
Children’s cross-country skis come in lengths from 110cm to 170cm. When in doubt, choose a slightly shorter ski. Even if it’s not perfect, a more manageable, lighter ski is preferable to a ski that is too long and extremely difficult to control.
Here is a good starting point for determining the right ski length:
- Skate ski beginners: Height minus 5-10cm
- Skate ski advanced: Height plus 5-10cm
- Classic ski beginners: Height plus10cm
- Classic ski advanced: Height plus10-20cm
