What is the correct length pole to use for skating and classic techniques?

Skating and classic require different length poles and the difference is usually around 10-15 cm. Most nordic coaches now agree that correct pole length for skating reaches between the chin and upper lip, roughly 90% of your height. To find this number multiply your height in inches times 2.3; now to find classic pole length, subtract from 10-15 cm. The classic-length pole will reach to between the armpit and top of the shoulder. Nordic poles available in 5cm increments.
