Shipping Information

Economy orders will ship within 5 business days and all other orders will generally ship within 1 to 3 business days. All packages must be sent to a valid street address. Customers are responsible for entering correct ship to addresses. Ship to addresses requiring correction may incur additional shipping charges. Skis, snowboards and some larger items will incur express shipping surcharges due to being categorized as oversized from all shipping carriers. This shipping surcharge will be assigned at time of checkout.

Additional Shipping Information

*Due to package size restrictions some large or bulky items (such as travel bags, travel cases), will have an oversize package handling charge applied. The additional charge for oversized items will be combined with the regular shipping fee in the shipping charge box at checkout. 

Failed Delivery Attempts

Most of our carriers make three attempts to deliver a package. Packages that contain more than $100 of merchandise may require a signature; otherwise, it is generally up to the driver's discretion to determine whether a signature is required. If the driver feels it is best to obtain a signature and no one is present to accept the delivery after three attempts, the package will be returned to us.
