American companies, online or not, can't ship Burton, Anon, R.E.D, or any other Burton affiliated product across the boarder up to Canada. Burton and the Companies that carry Burton up here, have an exclusive shipping agreement that forces you to go to board shops instead of shopping deals online. That's why Burton products are so expensive here.

Seems fairly stupid on Burton's part seeing as Whistler/Blackcomb, Revelstoke, Powderking, and the Banff resorts just to name a few, are all in Canada. Poor business model for sure if you are placing limitations of access to your product on half a contenent.
