Ski poles are your friends. They help you maintain proper form and balance, as well as help you get across the flat spots. The only people that shouldn't use poles are kids that cannot parallel yet, true beginners, snowboarders, and park skiers that desperately need to look like snowboarders. So if you aren't one of these categories, you should be using poles.
Sizing poles is easy. Just use the ski pole Sizing chart to give you a good estimate of what length of poles you should be using.
Ideally, your arm should be parallel to the ground when you grasp the pole (with the tip up) below the basket.

There are cases when you can go longer or shorter than what the chart recommends:

  • If you are a bump skier, you should size down 2-8 inches.
  • If you want an aggressive stance for steeps and higher speed skiing, size down 2 inches.
  • If you are doing a lot of park skiing, size down 2-6 inches
  • If you Telemark, size down 2-6 inches
  • If you are powder skiing a lot, size up 2 inches.
  • If you are ski jousting, size up 4-12 inches

We have thousands of poles to choose from, and if we don't have your size, any of our poles are easy to cut to length.

Nice and lightReview by Ben
These are great poles - nice and sturdy after coming from composites (lighter as well!) which had too much flex for my liking.
The grips are comfy and the straps are very easy to adjust. In the photo they looked like rubber but they are actually a satin like material.
I got the purple and was gambling the picture (which looks quite pink) was lighter then reality - I was half right, they are darker, but more of a nice fuchsia rather than pink or purple.

100% happy with the product and L9's exceptional service (how can you beat 3 day shipping to rural Australia!!!) (Posted on 8/4/2017)
Worked WellReview by PG
Nice poles for what I needed. I am intermediate skier, was going to just buy the Level 9 brand, but went with these to distinguish between mine and my wife's poles. Hard to beat for the price. (Posted on 1/19/2017)
