With Ski Resorts all across the world closing due to COVID-19, the snowboard industry has taken a hard hit and snowboarders are being forced to head home early. In an effort to keep all of our customers updated, Snowboard Addiction will be continuing as normal to produce content and ship out orders with as few delays as we can control.
Over the coming months, we anticipate that we may experience a shortage of our Training Equipment due to delays in our production. At the heart of Snowboard Addiction, we believe that you should be able to snowboard all year and continue to push your limits.
COVID-19 Shipping Update
COVID-19 has taken the world by storm and has disrupted many businesses. Currently Snowboard Addiction is still shipping out orders. See below for updates on shipping.
Countries Affected By Shipping Suspension
– Czech Republic
We are at the mercy of our order fulfillment company. At this time we do not have a timeline of when the suspension will be removed. If you have placed an order to one of the affected areas and your order is on hold, you can either wait for it to arrive with you or you can cancel and we will refund your order.
Snowboard Addiction is making the health and safety of our global community, staff, and their families our top priority during the COVID-19 Pandemic. As we focus solely on Snowboarding, we are not experts with virus’ and are therefore acting on the advice of the professionals through taking the following steps:
- All employees bar one are now working remotely at home.
- We have suspended visitors to our office for demo sessions.
- We are encouraging our staff to wash hands regularly and avoid panic buying toilet roll…
Experts agree that social distancing and exercise is vital to fending off this virus. So, now is the time to keep training and push your limits for next winter!
