As of late spring, they now embargo mail order sale of ski and technical
climbing gear outside of Canada.  The catalog has a little globe beside
the description of the item indicating that it can only be sold in Canada.
 There are 4 (AFAIK) MEC stores, the original in Vancouver, 2 more in the
west and a new one in Toronto.  Your options are to go skiing in BC and
pick up your stuff while there, or go to Toronto and visit Leigh - no
comment :-).

It is claimed that they caved in to pressure from Black Diamond/Scarpa.
There has been discussion of this on, news section.   You
can still get great prices on ski gear from telemark pyrenees, linkable
from telemarktips.  Also the great buys in technical clothing, packs etc.
are still available from MEC.
