Default How do I find CHEAP shipping Sweden - Canada

My situation is as following. I am currently in Mexico without any sort of ski equipment at all. Back in Sweden I got a full set ski equipment. I am going to Canada, Whistler in end of January and will stay there for 2 months. I thinking of shipping my skiis, boots to Canada and use it for whole season. As finished, I could ship it all home back to Sweden.

I have googled around looking for shpping information and found DHL, UPS, TNT and SendMyBag. Problem is it seems like I have to pay a fortune to ship them back and forth. That, different to others on Internet, which seems to get away fairly cheap. How do they do it?

DHL and UPS want like $400 CAD for one way.
TNT only ships for buisness
SendMyBag only ships from UK (I could ship my bags to their office in UK then forward it)

So my question is, how the heck do I find cheap shipping back and forth of boots & skis from Sweden to Canada?

Shipping information:
Code:
From: 
Country: Sweden 
City: Stockholm

To: 
Country: Canada 
City: Whistler 

Maximum delivery time: Up to 30 days 

Dimensions bag 1: 
Length: 200 cm 
Height: 20 cm 
Width: 20 cm 
Weight: 7 KG 

Dimensions bag 2: 
Length: 45 cm 
Height: 40 cm 
Width: 25 cm 
Weight: 7 KG
Thanks by advance!

Ouch. Looks pricy.

Excess-baggage.com is another service that may work, but to be honest, you might be better off buying something on Craigslist out here, and sell it at the end of the season.

I have heard that it is common practice to ship luggage from the US to Europe when heading over, would think it works both ways....maybe you need to find a slower freight.

I know I had 4 snowboards delivered from Germany to Canada for about $200 in shipping. Honestly there is so much equipment in Canada I'd just buy used and sell it at the end of the season...
