Founded in 1970 by Austrian-born heli-skiing pioneer Mike Wiegele, Mike Wiegele Helicopter Skiing (MWHS) has evolved into a world-renown skier’s paradise. MWHS’s vast 1.5-million-acre tenure, encompasses over 1,000 peaks and runs, in the Cariboo, Monashee and Rocky Mountain ranges. Whether it is the sense of freedom from carving turns down a pristine blanket of snow on one of the high alpine glaciers or experiencing the challenge of a steep tree run, MWHS’s wide variety of terrain provides an exciting heli-skiing and heli-snowboarding experience, in one of the world’s most consistent high-quality skiing snow belts.
For 50-years, MWHS has also provided an environment that fosters mutual respect, inspires confidence on the mountain, and creates lasting bonds between guests and those who share the passion for skiing. It starts with Mike Wiegele himself, who has brought his passion for skiing and close-knit family together over a half a century ago.
Mike and Bonnie Wiegele have always had a history of pioneering heli-ski safety and supporting industry athletes. Before the Wiegele family founded MWHS, Mike operated a ski school in Lake Louise in 1965, where he coached and produced six National Team athletes. Five decades later, MWHS is proud to continue to support the industry’s athletes and their podium dreams.
At MWHS, the foundation has always been fostering a future for this industry that provides a lifetime of fun and freedom for those who aim to pursue this incredible sport. Mike, Bonnie and the MWHS team are honoured to support the Canadian Alpine Masters’ Team and Masters Alpine Ski Racing in 2020 and wishes the best of luck to all competitors. Let’s go skiing!
Sport Dinaco synonymous with PASSION: In 1973, Larry Nardone, an enthusiastic 23-year-old skier, founded his distribution company, Sport Dinaco, in the basement of the family home in Pont Viau, Laval. The small office quickly became recognized for the quality of the products offered and unparalleled service. When customers visited the house, they were always greeted by the tantalizing smells of the kitchen and it was rare that they did not leave with a treat, courtesy of Maman Louise.
Nearly 40 years later, the team has grown and the products have changed, but the heart of the company remains unwavering: Innovative, high-end products and exceptional customer service are the foundation on which Sport Dinaco grows.
The Kunstadt family has always been highly active and love their sports, going back generations. Peter Kunstadt, a familiar, well liked, skilled Masters racer, and former member of the Czechoslovakian National Ski Team in the 1960s and his two sons Eric and Ron, started it all with a second hand tennis stringing machine in the family’s basement, necessitated by his family’s passion for playing tennis which required frequent expensive racquet restringing. While working his days as an engineer at a nuclear radiation technology company, the family team worked from their family house’s basement, growing the operation from tennis racquet stringing and ski tuning to opening a small sports store on Hazeldean Road in Kanata, Ontario, and started with refurbishing and selling used bikes and skis. They quickly gained a reputation for quality service, and suppliers began flocking to their door. They are now a unique high quality sports retailer as they also offer their own line of skis and bikes, made to their own exacting specifications by highly recognized ski and bike manufacturers.
Giving back to the community is an important part of who they are. They are big supporters of the Canadian Association of Disabled Skiers (CADS), they have designed special bikes and skis for the disabled who want to be active, and they are huge supporters of the Ottawa Masters Ski Club and Canadian Alpine Masters. Kunstadt Sports started the annual Kunstadt Open Tennis Tournament at the Glen Cairn Tennis Club in Kanata, and they also actively participate in the annual Parliament Ride alongside MPs and Senators.
Today, this proud family run operation has four stores in the Ottawa area, and with the addition of their online store, they remain a solid fixture on the sports scene in the Ottawa area and beyond.
