Couch from CanadianCartel.com

Hey Everyone,


I have lurked for a while but I thought I would introduce myself. I live near the base of Hemlock Valley in the Fraser Valley. I started snowboarding in '89 when nobody really knew what it was. I spent 5 years as a backcountry guide with the Canada West Mt School Canada West Mountain School - Mountaineering, rock climbing and backcountry skiing guided expeditions and courses where I helped develop avalanche courses specific to snowboarders. Scroll ahead quite a few years and I now have a family and I am one of the owners of CanadianCartel.com

Looks like a great community here.

Thanks, Rich

It's a legit site. I was going to order a Bataleon Disaster from their last sale with Bataleon boards but loafted and missed out. The price was insane good though.

It's always nice to see another site with great sales that you know you won't have to worry about conversion rates or border taxes or anything because the site is all Canadian. Just get another Bataleon sale going with another Disaster and I'll buy it right away this time!

Hey, I posted up the Bataleon sale here as a PSA couple days ago. Just bought myself a new Planet Earth jacket yesterday (I think you were the one who helped me pick the size properly?!?)

I like how your site works, although sometimes I've compared prices and you can find similar everyday prices (i.e. the camelback sale a few months back).

For things like the bataleon boards you were well below the competition!

Also, thanks for going to free shipping over a certain amount. Shipping charges actually stopped me from buying a few products in the past.

So, trying to join up and discovered I'm already a member. Can't remember from when (maybe you should send an annual reminder to inactive members). After going through the reset-password process, when it's supposed to log you in, you instead get a 404 page not found. When you try to click the "tell us about the problem" link, you get a 404 page not found. I think it's the "Contact us" page that's missing.

Send me an email with the email addy you think you would have used and I will go in and manually reset it for you. *******

Thanks for the support. The shipping thing is the most our biggest headache. Just for Canada Post to touch a package costs $7 then there is the actual shipping cost on top of that. Even if you pay the shipping rate of $10.95 we still end paying more. Canada is a BIG country with a tiny population - this makes it very expensive to ship here.

No, I got it reset ok. It was the next step, once the password is reset, that failed.
