Guide To Alpine Ski Equipment


Measure up
Skis are measured in centimeters (cm). Your ski length will depend on your ability, height and weight. A rental shop technician will help you decide on the appropriate length.


 The retention setting on bindings are measured in "DIN," which stands for Deutsche Industrie Norm. In general, the higher your weight and skiing ability, the higher the DIN setting. Have a ski shop technician determine and set your DIN for you.

Poles are measured in inches.
