Please take the time to carefully package your returns. It is the responsibility of the customer to pay costs related to the repair of returned items damaged in shipping due to improper packaging.
Exchanges & Return Numbers (RMAs)
Sometimes you need to exchange a product for something else—it happens. Exchanges only require a few minutes and an RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization) number.
You can request an RMA from an order listed in your Amazon Order History—see the link titled ‘To initiate a return…‘ beneath our phone number.
The fastest way to exchange a product is to return your original purchase and place a new order at the same time. Immediately placing a new order ensures that you’ll get the new product quickly and that it won’t go out of stock while you wait. Just make an RMA, place a new order, and return your original item.
With a Prepaid Label
To make shipping a return even easier, we offer a flat-rate $6.99 UPS shipping label for eligible U.S. customers returning products not required to ship freight.* You’ll have the option to print this label after creating an RMA number for a return or exchange.
Print your label, tape it to the outside of your return package, and drop it off at a UPS store at your convenience. The $6.99 price for the label will be deducted from the refund or credits issued for the return of your new or used items.
*Products required to ship freight may include: kayaks, SUP boards, cargo boxes, car racks, indoor cycles, and more.
Without a Prepaid Label
To return products without a $6.99 UPS label:
- Request an RMA from your Amazon Order History
- Fill out the information requested on the sales receipt that arrived with your purchase. This receipt also serves as paperwork necessary for your return. Include the RMA and drop this receipt in your return package.
- Write the RMA on the outside of your package.
- Ship your return to this address:
Backcountry Returns Department
2607 South 3200 West, Suite A
West Valley City, UT 84119
It takes 3–5 business days to process a return after it arrives at our distribution center. You’ll receive an email confirmation when your return is received.
Phone: (800) 409-4502
International: (801) 973-4553

Ski Sizing By Backcountry
Skis: Size Wise
What you need to know when buying new planks!
Your ski size is largely determined by both your skiing ability and your preferred style of skiing. For example, an expert skier in Vermont will ski a far different ski than an expert in British Columbia. So take a look at our chart and explanations and find your perfect fit. Your weight also plays a large factor in finding the right ski. If you are either under or over average weight for your height consider downsizing or upsizing, respectively.
Skill Level Explanations
Pro: Excels on any terrain, on any snow condition. Enjoys high speeds.
Expert: Comfortable on any terrain and most snow conditions.
Intermediate: Comfortable on Blue trails, exploring Black trails.
Entry Level: Learning to ski Green and Blue trails.
Glossary of Technical Specifications
Tail:Shape of the back of your ski, such as flat, raised, and twin.
Turn Radius: The distance it takes to make a turn measured in meters.
Core Material: The materials that comprise the center of the ski. Primarily tuned woods and composites to determine the flex of the skis.
Top Sheet: The laminate on the top of the ski. Contributes to weight, durability, and aesthetics of graphics
Base: The density of the material on the bottom of the board, the harder it is the faster you go.
