Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Shipping skis to Canada

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
There's four of us nipping over to Canadia next year.

We were thinking of shipping the avi bags over, but then thought it might be worthwhile sending the skis too.

Anyone know of a company who do this, or is it just the usual courier services?

Ta Very Happy

@Mosha Marc, https://www.transglobalexpress.co.uk/parcel-to/canada/?gclid=Cj0KCQjwl8XtBRDAARIsAKfwtxBwZt0-XHRturtpUPZmpGLDVfUTbBS4jR624b-Fn3hxjgJaryrXj_4aAtBiEALw_wcB

I used these guys when shipping some small house stuff over for my son , just watch out for Canadian customs they can be a right pain , what's the issue with extra baggage on normal flights ??

We fly into the States, so avi bags are a non starter.
A ski bag will cost about £120 to get there and back, so was looking to see if could be done cheaper

Air Canada carry them for free, but you have to take a human with each bag of course.

Why is avi bag a non starter - just dump the cartridge contents b4 you fly and get a refill at destination.

Where in US are you flying into and where in Canada do you plan to go?

Lots of airlines ski bag goes free. Regarding the airbag fill the canister up somewhere along the way or it may be easier and cheaper to just rent one out there. Depends how many days you need, remember it's not necessary for "in-bounds" off-piste, only if you are leaving the resort.

At risk of stating the obvious, the US laws for airbags are different from Canada.

I fly into Spokane and then drive up to Rossland.

We fly with Delta who do charge for skis apparently.

I've found out I can ship just the cannisters and triggers for less than £40 return. That looks favourite at the moment. Cheaper than hire or refills.

@Mosha Marc,
Not sure how easy it'll be to find a canister refill place near Rossland if you do go that route (or even somewhere to ship them to/from) - Trail or Castlegar perhaps?

 And love to help out and answer questions and of course, read each other's snow reports.

To be honest one of the reasons I bought BCA float. Much easier to find an air rifle or painball fill tank most places.

 So if you're just off somewhere snowy come back and post a snow report of your own and we'll all love you very much

Come on rossland is not that small and remote. I've had stuff shipped from USA to rossland, no problems. For refills try contacting Powderhound sports (they definitely sell airbags, so might refill too). Can also contact butch bounty Ski shop to ask them.

There is some decent slack-country around red mountain, but for the best touring get yourself out to Kootenay pass
