Finding the right snowboard size is critical to enjoying a good shred here in Breckenridge, or any snowy canvas you find yourself on. With years of experience and hours of slope and backcountry time, the pros at Breckenridge Ski & Sport have built a sizing chart to help you out.
There are some simple physics equations built into most snowboards that correspond to two critical human body characteristics, your height, and your weight. There are some quick tricks people use to identify the right board length, like standing a board up from the floor and seeing if it measures up to this “goldilocks” range somewhere between your chin and eyes. Or, you can use this simple sizing guide we put together below that will help you find the perfect size snowboard without sizing up every board in the shop.
P.S. The cool thing about snowboard boots is unlike ski boots which don’t make any sense, you can generally use a snowboard boot that’s the same size as your street shoes.
