Skis Size Guide
Find your size with our expert advice video:
As explained in our video guide above, choosing the right ski length depends on a mix of different factors. On a basic level, height, weight and ability should give you a good idea of what length of ski you should go for.
As a rule of thumb, start with a ski around nose to eyebrow level height.
If you are just starting out, or at an intermediate level, then we suggest that you take some length off. If you’re a more advanced/expert skier, then we suggest you should push your ski length towards your full height or even further. If you are heavier than the average weight for your size, feel free to add some ski length as well.

The Faction Prodigy 4 is the widest ski in the Prodigy series at 116 mm waist width, providing optimal float on the deepest powder day. Thanks to the directional twin-tip shape, eliptical sidecut, poplar wood core, and heavy rocker profile, the Prodigy 4 is incredibly playful by nature, effortlessly buttering over rollers, stomping big airs, and nimbly dances through powder laden forests. Complementing its prowess in the deep snow, the ski reliably holds its edge and is highly adept in tight-turning scenarios, for the days spent impatiently waiting for the next storm to arrive.
You'll love this ski if:
- You want a fat, playful ski because you regularly ski powder and soft snow
- You like to surf, smear and slash in soft snow conditions
- You love to butter and occasionally ski or land backwards
- You believe that pow is life
