Making A Purchase

Making a purchase could not be easier. Just browse our online catalogue, and click on “Add To Basket” for each item you wish to buy. This will place the item in your shopping basket, and you can check the contents of your basket at any time by hovering over the basket icon in the top right corner of the page. After you have finished your selection, click on the “Checkout” button while hovering over the basket to place your order. You will then be asked for a few details that we need to be able to satisfy the order.

We accept online payment via PayPal or by credit or debit card through the secure payment services of Protx. Protx is part of The Royal Bank of Scotland Group. Orders will not be accepted without a valid card payment in the name of the registered cardholder together with details of the cardholder's registered address. You will be given the option to designate a different address for delivery, and we recommend that this be an address where someone is available during the day to sign for the goods. Your card will be debited at the time of purchase. If an item is not in stock at the time you place your order, we will send you an email advising you of alternatives. If you wish to cancel the order at that stage you may do so, and we will arrange to credit any payment made back to the same card.

You may also send your credit card information via phone or snail mail.

Please note that completion of the online checkout process does not constitute our acceptance of your order even though we may have debited your card or we have sent acknowledging emails. Our acceptance of your order will take place only when we despatch the product(s) or commencement of the services that you ordered from us. We have taken reasonable precautions to try to ensure that prices quoted on the website are correct and that all products have been fairly described. However, when ordering products or services through the website, please note that orders will only be accepted if there are no material errors in the description of the goods or services or their prices as advertised on this website.

It is an offence for any person under the age of 16 years of age to purchase a knife. We shall only supply knives and related equipment to customers over the age of 18. By accepting our terms and conditions, you are declaring that you are aged 18 or over.

Supply of Skis & Snowboards

Due to the precise fitting requirements of winter sports equipment, skis/snowboards and bindings ordered online will be supplied separately. For your safety, we recommend that you have these properly fitted by a local ski shop, preferably an authorised dealer. We cannot accept any responsibility for damage or injury due to incorrectly fitted or poorly maintained equipment.

Damage caused by use on dry slopes is considered as wear and tear and will not be covered by the manufacturer’s warranty. Repairs will be chargeable. Please contact your local shop for information on servicing.

Cash refunds are not given. You must retain your original purchase receipt.
The comfort guarantee is only valid for the season in which the boots are purchased.
This guarantee is in addition to your statutory rights.

Snowboards and Bindings Purchased via our website

Snowboards sold via www.themountainedge.com will have the same guarantees as if they were purchased in store. Bindings will be supplied un-mounted in all cases, as it is impossible to safely set up snowboards without the rider being present. Binding set up is a free service offered on all boards purchased on our website. Simply visit our stores, and we will mount and set your bindings to a suitable riding position. Please take your receipt.

Ski/Snowboard Boot Purchases via our website

Whilst this service is available we do not recommend it, as it is literally impossible to get the right fit without having the boot custom fitted by an experienced boot fitter. Ski Boots purchased via our website will not be covered by our exclusive Comfort Guarantee unless taken in to our stores, for assessment by one of our trained boot fitters. This service is free of charge. Please take your receipt.

Sale of Footwear Online

Whilst our full range of footwear is available online, we recommend that you use this only as a guide. As part of Craigdon Mountain Sports’ commitment to the highest levels of podiatric health and biomechanical analysis, we strongly suggest you have your footwear fitted in store by our experienced and highly trained boot fitters.
Any footwear purchased online is subject to our standard 14 day returns policy. You should not wear any footwear outside until you are 100% sure of the fit. Returns must be in saleable condition, complete with box and proof of purchase. Any footwear purchased online will not be covered by our exclusive Comfort Guarantee (see below for details) unless taken into our shop for assessment by one of our trained boot fitters. This service is free of charge, please take your receipt.

Comfort Guarantee

All footwear purchased in store is covered by our comfort fit guarantee. Footwear purchased online and fitted in store afterwards is also included in this service. Our experienced boot fitters will make every effort to ensure the perfect fit before you leave the store, however, should you experience any problems with the fit, we will continue to offer a refitting service. This may involve modification of the footwear, as well as the addition of supportive footbeds; however cases will be assessed on an individual basis.

The following conditions apply to the Comfort Guarantee:
Refunds are not given. You must retain your original purchase receipt. The comfort guarantee is only valid for the season in which the boots are purchased
