    Ski Equipment Order Fulfillment?

    I paid and placed an order for some Look P14s in July. I still haven't gotten them.

    I'm out of the loop on this stuff, but I remember distributors being a little slow on filling orders year ago.

    Has it gotten this much worse?

    Ski Equipment Order Fulfillment?

    That seems like a long time for an order to come. July to Oct?

    I have a different issue. Am located in Canada.

    I ordered stuff in March (Pivots and ski jacket) delivered to to my USA postal box which is just across the border in Sumas, WA....I teach at at Canadian university close to the border and would typically walk across between classes to pick stuff up.

    Still waiting on the border to re-open to be able to cross and pick it up. Not too hopeful for a quick open. Gonna be interesting to see what happens Nov 3rd.

    Contacted the postal place about them shipping it up....seems to be too much hassle.

    Itís my 5th set of Pivots....in my quiver of 7 - 8 skis.

    First world problems.

    That's too long, any Seattle shop doesn't warehouse any further away than Auburn/Puyallup/Sumner. Time to call customer care and get it sorted out.

    Ski Equipment Order Fulfillment?

    I have heard from a shop friend in California that a lot of their stuff was held up in New Jersey due to a dockworkersís strike.


    also, some pro orders are fulfilled through retail shops, so thatís what happened with at least one of my orders

    I did. They told ne it's 2 to 4 weeks out, which is what they told me in August. This is a well known local shop, I'm surprised at the lack of communication and delivery.

    3 times.

    I know I'm known as sort of a wallflower, but I've made an exception to ask them several times, once in August, once in September and again today.

    I'm all for supporting local brick and mortar, but this is just weird.

    Seems you now have a decision to make based off the communications.
    Sounds to be like they are being disingenuous which would make me pull my order and ask for my money back. Thatís your call. Seems as you have been overly patient.

    Yeah, but I'm just trying to solicit information from people in the business. Are deliveries really this bad now due to covid or something?

    Some things, particularly backcountry-related, are in very short supply and are already nearly sold out. Re-supply is a bit of an issue, mostly due to people cancelling orders at the start of the COVID shutdown, factories going on hiatus, then dealers deciding there would be demand and trying to re-order. We are very short on P14's at the moment, but P15's are starting to filter in . . .

    I ordered STH2's from another place in mid Sept, they said backordered--would ship Oct 1. Then I got an email that they were delayed, ship Oct 31, but they shipped today. I notice that none of the the local shops have Solly bindings in stock. What Mikey says makes sense. 2020-1 gear slow getting into the country and into the shops--either due to the strike or the usual Covid related delays. Not the shop's fault Everyone seems to have Marker though.

    Good offer, B. I could do something similar but not as cheap, and I'd probably insist you get P15's.

    Got my orders from 22 Designs, Scarpa, and Nordica all in 7-10 days from the time of order. I would imagine that the fire in the Rossi factory isn't going to help things this year however. Between that, COVID slow downs, and logistical nightmares, it's gonna be an interesting year for gear. Glad I don't really NEED anything...
    Gravity. It's the law.

    Thanks guys, I'm still trying to work it out with the up valley brick and mortar.

    I may come back next week with contrition and a request for p15s.

    I have no idea about supply chain issues but how you've been treated by the store is total bull shit. It's one thing if inventory was wrong and they ran out or if you placed an order before the website was updated but they should have visibility into what is on order or shipping to them and when it should arrive. If they don't have it that should be communicated. Anything less is fucked up.

    Not that this helps you now, but I heard on the radio that alberta is going to pilot project giving RETURNING residents the option to take a Covid test instead of isolating for 14 days upon return.

    There are a couple of other stipulations.

    But the americans that are reading this should know you still can't cross under this plan.

    Thanks. Getting a Covid test would not be fun.

    I ended up buying a new pair of Pivot 15s up here in Canada for $379cdn. The Pivot 18s sitting since March in Sumas were $325US ($425cdn). Iíll just sell em whenever the border opens and I can get them. I figure it will be a while yet.

    Iím more stressed that I canít ski Mt Baker this year, especially with La NiŮa forecasted.

    Been hitting up Corbettís for gear...and even stranger...buying from a local shop! Go figure.

    I hear you...sucks to have your gear stranded.

    In light of the new rules I might cross the border to buy a raft and could drop ship items for you if you are interested

    I just received STH2-13s from a big on line seller. I try to buy local but the local shops are showing no Solly bindings and very little binding inventory in general. I assume they're still waiting on inventory. I imagine the bigger online sellers are first in line when there are inventory and supply chain issues.
