Ok some more updates from my pre-snow mass buying spree.. I need a bunch of stuff by the 13th of Nov cuz I am going up to Jasper to board Marmot Basin.

Think Empire

I ordered 2 on sale snowboard bags Sunday night, and got them Monday via Fedex! I paid 15ish buck extra shipping for express shipping but I didn't think it'd be THAT fast

Xtreme-Adrenaline

Ok so these guys finally got Never Summer Boards in, then guess what only in Size 155! Oh well... I emailed to ask about it they said the product was "Extremely Allocated"

The Board Room

I broke down to pay some taxes cuz I really wanted the Never Summer SL-R, got free shipping on my Never Summer SL-R 158 and 2 pairs of binders. Fairly quick shipping and I got the green board base.

I have ordered a bunch of stuff from the states from Remember Delaware, Backcountry.com and Dogfunk will report when I get the items

Have you had to pay the GST and PST on stuff from Backcountry/Outlet/Dogfunk shipped via UPS World Ease?

I have a US shipping address (yay free US shipping, faster than USPS Priority! UPS truck apparently goes non-stop from SLC to Seattle) which I use and then just bring the stuff over the border myself, and Customs has never made me pay any taxes on anything.

Nope, no taxes.. all included in the shipping option. For me the 3 hour drive to the border and the stress prohibits that being an option... I hate crossing the border I swear I feel guilty everytime like I had 3 lbs of meth stuffed in my butt or something.

I ordered from Empire a few months back even though I'm an Amurrican. I was looking for 08 white Rome 390's and my girl was looking for a Rome Label, and that site was the only one where either of us could find what we were looking for. Prices weren't fantastic, but I was impressed with that, and customer service was cool enough to call me and warn me that the bindings wouldn't fit the board.

Thank you for this great thread, so hard finding retailers that ship from Canada, and taxes on int'l shipping are absolutely ridiculous.

Here's another great site.

Honestly I don't find the duty included shipping option from UPS to be that expensive having done a lot of calculations, when you calculate in the lower price of American goods, then remember that you have to pay taxes on stuff in Canada as well as shipping, even with the exchange rate it comes out cheaper.

...unless you order from True Snowboards - Advanced Snowboard Design and Engineering, as we've yet to adjust canadian pricing for currency differences & have no immediate plans to do so.
