info: Congratulations Keaton McCargo! So proud of, and happy for, my sweet amazing friend. And thrilled to have made her gold medal!
At the 2018 US Freestyle Championships-Moguls, hosted by Waterville Valley March 20-24, winners are awarded medals custom designed and fabricated by metal artist Lisa Issenberg, of Kiitellä. The "gold, silver & bronze" medals consist of laser-cut satin-polished brass, steel and bronze. Kiitellä's process includes a mix of both handcraft and industrial techniques… no two medals are the same.
For Issenberg, creating the medals for Waterville Valley is especially meaningful, as she grew up skiing on the WVBBTS Freestyle "team" with coaches Nick & Susie Preston.
