buy skis online canada?

Any recommended online ski stres in Canada (preferably Ontario/Quebec to avoid postage costs)?

I know if evo but I think it's in the States so there are customs fees to pay.

ASOGEAR, it's Corbett's (in Oakville) online eBay clearance store.  FedEx shipping included.  I've used them more than once and highly recommend them.  They're very fast, but choices are somewhat limited since it's primarily closeout items.  You might get lucky though, check them out.

Level Nine is really good about shipping to CA, and they know how to deal with customs (told me before that there's no customs duty on skis if "done right".

I've bought s couple of sets of Smith I/O's from them and there shipping's always been quick and product as represented, even shipping to US (at no charge).

Level nine, $20 flat rate, 12% tax prepaid and no brokerage. Avoid clothing items though, 30% duty.

I don't know if they still have skis out, but sports expert has everything on 40% off so they aren't that much more than online price.

According to the Candian Duty schedule, there's no duty on skis, just taxes. Done it a couple of times with no issues.

If you live anywhere close to the boarder it can be worth it to have it sent to a parcel pick up place in a boarder town. I did that this past summer and saved a ton of money on a new set of skis. I got a pair of line influence 115s in evos summer sale for $445 online with no tax or delivery charged, I paid $5 to the parcel pick up place, and when I crossed the boarder I said that I bought a pair skis to the customs officer and she said have a nice day! The cheapest that I have seen those skis in Canada online or in stores is $700 plus 13% tax. Huge difference! Naturally I bought my new bindings at a local ski shop to help me sleep at night.

I have done the same thing, but didn't get away with paying the taxes.
