How do I choose the proper ski size?
We recommend sizing skis with the "use your head" method. The key to this rule is simplicity. For type 1 (novice) skier, size the skis with the tip approximately chin height. For type 2 (intermediate), use approximately nose height. Type 3 (expert) skiers will be sized correctly when the ski tip is at forehead height. For the best sizing, ask your local Authorized Blizzard Retailer.
