Shipping Policy

Gear West ships purchases using UPS and USPS. We make every effort to get your order out as quickly as possible. Some products including skis may take longer to process depending on the shop services required. We do not offer deferred shipping options.

After orders are submitted, they are considered in-process and cannot be altered, canceled, or held for a later shipping date. We work quickly to get your items picked, serviced, boxed, and shipped to you as soon as possible. When you receive your order, you may return any of the items using the instructions found on our Returns & Exchanges page.
