83% Classic Pole Rule: Classic poles have to be no more then 83% of your height, wearing your ski boots. Pole height is measured from the tip of your pole to the top of your pole strap. There will not be a measuring station at the start – it is each athlete’s responsibility their poles correct length. TD’s have the right to measure and questionable length poles at the finish.
