Johann Brunner and his wife Margaritha run a kiosk during the summer months with their children Emma, Kläri and Marthi.
Winter operation begins. Emma and her husband Otto Konzett run the business independently.
The kiosk is converted into a souvenir and sports shop.
Emma and Otto's daughter Edeltraud marries Samuel Wyss. A year later, Toni is born.
With the introduction of the first metal skis made by "Head", Samuel sets a new benchmark.
Emma hands the business down to Edeltraud and Samuel.
Samuel becomes the sole representative for Robert Lusser's revolutionary ski safety binding.
Toni marries Marie-Louise Nobs. Together they have four children: Michael, Daniel, Anna-Käthi and Rosmarie. The shop is continuosly renovated and extended in response to increasing demand.
Toni takes over the Swiss Ski & Snowboard School Kleine Scheidegg from Marcel von Allmen. The school office is moved from the Hotel Bellevue des Alpes Kleine Scheidegg to Wyss Sport.
The ground floor is renovated to include a ski workshop and sports shop.
New stockrooms and a common room for the ski instructors and staff are built.
The sports shop is refurbished and the rental facilities modernised.
The upper floors of the building are converted into living quarters.
Toni and Marie-Louise hand the business down to Daniel. He marries Conny Egger, and they have two children: Emily and Romy.
The sports and souvenir shop is entirely rebuilt and extended, and now comes with large windows.
Toni hands the Swiss Ski & Snowboard School Kleine Scheidegg down to Marcel "Hombi" Homberger, Christian Füegi and Stephan Rubin. School office and meeting point remain at Wyss Sport.
Customers of Wyss Sport can book their equipment conveniently via the newly launched online rental shop.
The old stone roof has had its days - May the new roof also last 100 years!
