With constantly changing weather and landscape that encompasses everything from the sprawling prairies of Saskatchewan to the concrete canyons of Toronto to the imposing majesty of the Canadian Rockies, it makes sense for Subaru to have a strong presence in Canada. In 1976, Canadians got their first exposure to the benefits of Subaru All-Wheel Drive when Subaru Auto Canada Limited (SACL) began offering a full range of vehicles. In 1989, the privately owned SACL was purchased by the Toronto-based Subaru Canada, Inc., who, under the guidance of parent company Fuji Heavy Industries, began an expansion process that would eventually see over 85 Subaru Dealers in operation across the country. The safety, control and performance of the Subaru symmetrical full-time All-Wheel Drive system has since endeared itself to Canadians, who have helped Subaru sales in Canada to reach record heights.

MDV Sports Canada - Welcome to the world of Marker, Dalbello and Völkl
Together we are one spirit! MDV Sports is the alliance of three major ski sport brands: Marker, Dalbello and Völkl. Individually, they are among the most influential and successful athletic brands worldwide. Together, they develop, produce and distribute innovative and essential winter hardware products. Thanks to this very close cooperation, synergies emerge that influence positively the growth and market positions of all three brands
Karl Lenhart, an avid skier himself, was less than impressed by the quality and functionality of the ski poles of the time. Therefore, he used his own machine park to manufacture grips and baskets for skiing poles. These went into mass production in the 60s. On the other hand, Lenhart was familiar with aluminium and composite processing on account of his aircraft manufacturing experience. In 1970, he used these raw materials to produce his first ski poles to be sold under the LEKI brand, which stands for the owners and the company headquarters, i.e. Lenhart in Kirchheim. LEKI's products are developed and designed together in Kirchheim/Teck, Germany and Tachov, Czech Republic. Poles are manufactured following modern and environmentally friendly processes in LEKI's own production facility in the Czech Republic. Leki seeks to operate under one strategic mandate: To combine safety and comfort with attractive design. The permanent exchange with experts and professional athletes ensures a high experience value. In turn, this results in smart, well-designed products, which customers can consistently enjoy and rely upon for years. With over 250 patents, LEKI has introduced more innovations and filed more patents than any other manufacturer in the outdoors and ski industry. Today, LEKI Lenhart GmbH is broadly recognised as the absolute world leader in pole and glove systems thanks to the consistent implementation of this philosophy.
The first catalog for the ISPO sports fair in early 1980 marked the beginning of the Alpina brand. The innovative new collection was small, but the faith in success as well as the enthusiasm of the founders Rainer Winter, Werner Grau, Rolf Obermeier and Hagen Stockklausner were infinitely large. It's all down to our ultra-modern styles, colours and designs, plus of course the reliably high quality of ALPINA products, which is of crucial importance to performance at this high level. In fact, with ALPINA the athletes can even have a direct input into product functions and further development. We recognise the importance of being close to the customer and responding to their needs. The fact that short distances are involved helps to make this possible: ALPINA products are developed and manufactured at the company's own production sites in Germany as well and it is easy to get feedback from the athletes and incorporate it quickly into product development. A lot happened in all the years. The company has steadily grown. Alpina is now the market leader in ski, sports eyewear and helmets. In Germany, Alpina maintains market shares of more than 40%, sells its products in over 35 countries and has established two subsidiaries in Austria and Switzerland.
During his travels in the early ‘90s, Icebreaker founder Jeremy Moon had a revelation. Rather than focus on creating the latest and greatest technical fabric for his clothing, he discovered that such a fabric was already available and could be found on a breed of animal living in New Zealand’s Southern Alps - merino wool. Merino was soft to the touch, comfortable against his skin, and easy to care for. He realized it offered the quick-drying, lightweight benefits of synthetic materials, coupled with the natural warmth, breathability, and odor-resistance of standard wool.
Since 1994, Icebreaker has been crafting this versatile fabric into hard-working technical clothes as well as sophisticated, high-performance urban apparel. Starting with underwear and base layers and expanding to mid and outer layers, Icebreaker outfits you for optimal four-season comfort. Whether you’re dressing for snow sports, hiking and backpacking, travel, running and fitness, or simply everyday activities, Icebreaker provides premium product for your active pursuits.

Ogasaka Ski Manufacture Co., Ltd.
Briko’s history dates back to 1985, when the company began producing ski wax for the Italian ski team. In the wake of its athletes' success, Briko soon decides to extend its product range, to include sunglasses, helmets and technical apparel, all designed in cooperation with its sports celebrity endorsers, who were always directly involved in the development of new products. During this evolutionary process, Briko developed numerous technical innovations: one example being the hugely successful Thrama lenses, introduced in 1989 and featuring an innovative and wide range of filters. In 1992, the Kasko helmet is launched onto the cycling market, followed in 2000 by Forerunner ski helmet. However, it is clothing that radically changes Briko’s position in the market, with the creation of the Katana collection in 2000, which offered technical pieces for both road cycling and mountain bikers. This was followed by the launch of the Beitostolen Nordic skiing range in 2003. Briko’s current team of sports celebrity endorsers comprises some of the most prestigious athletes on the international sports scene. Today, Briko products are distributed in over 60 countries worldwide and their high innovative content is guaranteed by Briko’s own R&D centre for product innovation, aka the "Briko Lab" - established in 2009, where Safety, Kare and Style programs combine Briko’s racing tradition with expert know-how and specialized resources from high-tech industries. And the rich number of medal won by Briko athletes is there to show it.
