Chris Bunch: Hi, I am Chris Bunch from Alpine Ski Shop in Sterling, Virginia and I am going to be going over how to choose ski and snowboard equipment. I am going to be going over questions on purchasing skis, how to choose the correct ski length, how to choose the ski model, choosing ski accessories, questions on purchasing a snowboard, the snowboard types and all the snowboard accessories. Always be aware of what's going on around you. Know to ski in to your left, to your right, know your trail signs, green for easiest, blue for more difficult and black sign is for the most difficult. I have been in ski business now since 1985. My father started Alpine Ski Shop in 1971 and my brother and I now run the store here in Sterling, Virginia. Let's get started.
