If you like a longer pole for backcountry skiing, we recommend sizing the Wyeast Ski Pole 5-10 cm (2-6 inches) longer than a standard ski pole. When skiing downhill, 5-10 cm of the pole should be above your hand.
For standard pole sizing please follow the chart below.
105 cm (42 in)5' 1" and below
115 cm (45 in)5' 2" - 5' 6"
125 cm (49 in)5' 7" - 5' 11"

Our ski poles are designed to biodegrade in a biologically active landfill (appropriate facilities not available in all areas). ASTM D5511 tests that represent biologically active landfills on representative applications have shown 20% biodegradation in 200 days.
