Credit Card Payments

When placing an order, the address given must be the same as that registered with your credit card company. To process your order more efficiently, we also request a telephone number. Please note, we never disclose customer information to any third party, with the exception of our delivery partners.

Order Confirmation & Contract of Sale

You will receive an email to confirm your order at the point of placing an order, as soon as your payment has been accepted. A contract of sale is in place once your account has been charged. On the rare occasion that we discover an item is no longer available after charging a customer's account, we reserve the right to either refund in full and cancel the sale, or offer a suitable alternative item.

Delivery Method & Time Frame

Our delivery partners have been chosen based on track record and their ability to meet the needs of our customers. All deliveries to standard UK addresses are sent out on a next day service; a signature is required to accept delivery without exception. Please note that although we aim to deliver within 3-5 days, this time frame is approximate and you may receive items within 24 hours of placing your order if they are in stock in our main warehouse. When an item is low in stock delivery time frame may be extended beyond 5 days; this will be communicated to you via email. We are not liable for any consequential loss as a result of late delivery or failed delivery by our carriers.

For guaranteed next working day delivery your order must be placed before 1pm (GMT) Monday – Friday. Orders placed on the weekend will be delivered on Tuesday.

International Deliveries

Customers outside of the EU are responsible for paying all taxes and duties. These are not included in our delivery charges and are usually invoiced by the delivery company that we use.


All return orders need to be sent back to us well packaged and safe for transit. Items damaged due to insufficient protection may be rejected or charged a restocking fee. Items packaged in a box (e.g. footwear) must be returned in an outer box or bag for protection. The postage label must not be applied directly to the product packaging. Orders need to be returned with the specified returns period; items returned after this may not be refunded.

Customer's Right To Cancel

According to the Distance Selling Regulations you have the legal right to cancel your order up to a maximum of 14 days from the day after you receive your goods. You must notify us of intent to cancel in writing, by contacting us at: Ellis Brigham Ltd, PO Box 491, Salford, M5 0AE, or via email: mail.order@snowboard-asylum.com. You can find a copy of our Standard Cancellation Form HERE. Any return postage costs are the responsibility of the customer and goods must be returned unused and packaged safely for transit.

Our returns policy gives you an extra week on top of your legal right, so when you order with Ellis Brigham you get 21 days to decide whether or not you want to keep the item(s).

Exceptions & Guarantee

Due to the very personal fitting implications inherent in the purchase of climbing boots, walking boots, ski boots and snowboard boots, we recommend that you buy these goods in person at one of our nationwide specialist shops.

If you do wish to purchase online, please make sure you have tried on the boots instore and have identified the product as suited to your aspirations. You must also complete our on-line checklist before the purchase can be completed.


We reserve the right to change our prices immediately if there is any further change in the VAT rate or if there is a major change in the value of the pound against other currencies which could affect some imported items. On the rare occasion that a customer places an order for a product on the website that is displaying an incorrect price, we reserve the right to refund any money paid and cancel any contract of sale in place, if a more suitable agreement cannot be made.

Although we display several currencies on the website, all orders are charged in GBP. Any other currencies shown are an indication of cost and the amount you are actually charged may differ slightly from what is displayed online. Currency rates are liable to change and are managed by an external third party.


Please note that the actual colour of some items may differ slightly from the photographic representations shown on this internet site. Whilst we endeavour to thoroughly test all hardware products on this site, it should be noted that descriptions of performance and suitability are purely subjective.

Liability Statement

Climbing, mountaineering, hillwalking, skiing, snowboarding, canoeing, cycling and other related activities are potentially hazardous.

Email Policy

Ellis Brigham & The Snowboard Asylum do not SPAM or condone UCE.

We do however send out emailshots from time to time for large events such as shows, sales and major company related news. The only email addresses we keep on record for these emailshots are from our own customers who did not 'opt-out' before the December 2003 Legislation or those who 'opted-in' after that date. This list includes online shoppers, competition entrants, catalogue subscribers and those who have specifically signed-up for mailing list purposes. Upon completing an order, you will also receive a request via email after 30 days to review the item you bought, and a request from Trustpilot to review our service. These emails are only sent once, and you can opt out of Trustpilot emails by clicking the unsubscribe link. If you do not wish to receive any further product review request emails please reply to the message, asking us to remove your email address.
