The UK wholesaler tells me that they didn't import any Swanys this
year because the poor Euro exchange rate made them too expensive.
There are some to be had, but not in my size. I think Canada remains
my best bet.

Did you try emailing to see who else stocked
them? A quick search shows just one retailer in Verbier with that
specific model,

Useful, ta - I'm missing a search from Switzerland button!

but it's more expensive than the US price, so if you can be confident
of the size you might as well just mail-order it from the US.

I see what you mean - there's a big difference in price. I think I'll
look for some more detail on Canadian prices, where if I'm patient I
can see them before buying - which I'm more inclined to do now, given
how expensive the better ones are.
