I am ordering from outside Canada, do I have to pay duties?

-Yes, as per our Shipping & Returns policy, the customer is responsible for any border customs duties, tariffs, taxes, or additional shipping costs once it has left our warehouse.

When will I get my tracking number?

-When you place an order, you will receive an order confirmation and invoice to your email inbox. The order status will be updated to "Ready for Shipment", which means our ecommerce team is working on fulfilling your order. Once the order has been packed and prepared for courier pick up, you will receive another automated email to your inbox with the courier information, and tracking number.

Why is my tracking number not being updated?

-We use a variety of couriers (UPS, FedEx, Canada Post, Purolator, Canpar, etc.) to offer the best rates and shipping times. The couriers oversee the updates on your package. Our customer service team does not have more information than what you see on the courier tracking page. If you are concerned with any delays, we can open a service ticket with the courier to have it investigated. Any delays are out of our control. However, we are happy to help to the best of our ability.

The product I want shows as "not available". Do you still have it?

-In many cases, no. However, as much as we'd like our inventory to be absolutely perfect, we do sometimes still have the product you are looking for. The best course of action is to give us a call at (403) 270-3800 or email us at [email protected] and ask!

Why is my payment method for my order being declined?

-If you run into any payment issues when placing your order, we advise you to double or triple-check that your billing information is correct. We often see hiccups with the billing address not matching the card. If you are still having issues, please feel free to call us at (403) 270-3800 or toll free 1 (888) 828-0857. You may also send an email to [email protected] for support.

I place an order for pick up, how long do I have to get it?

-Orders must be picked up within 14 days of receiving the "Order Ready for Pick Up" email notification. If your order is not picked up within this timeframe, the order will be cancelled and you will receive a full refund.

Why did I not receive everything in my order?

-In some cases, we cannot fit everything you ordered into one box. As a result, we may ship your order in multiple parcels. For example, if you purchase skis and bindings and do not get them mounted, we often have to ship the bindings in a separate parcel as they will not fit inside the ski box.

-Despite our best efforts, we may have not had part of your order in stock. In all instances, we will email you with this information before proceeding with shipment. If we do not hear from you within 72 hours of reaching out, we will proceed with the shipment of the remaining items in your order, and provide and refund for the out-of-stock product(s).

When can I pick up my order?

-Once our staff have prepared your order, you will receive a "Your Order is Ready for Pick Up" email. Please take the time to read the details of the pick up email that was sent to you. Our hours of operation and pick up locations differ from the winter to the summer season.

-During the winter season, orders are prepared and available for pick up at our Mountain Division location
