Kiitella is delighted to have created the “gold” medallions for the Toyota Ski Pro-Am at Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows – a ski racing and gala event to benefit nonprofit conservation partners Waterkeeper Alliance and Protect Our Winters.
Kiitella created a distinct set of bronze medallions and trophies for this year’s Vacheron Constantin Snow Golf Cup in Aspen… Solid metals, jet-cut design and text, the Maroon Bells, with a hand-polished bronze patina and wax…
The American Alpine Club‘s largest and most anticipated event of the year, the Annual Benefit Dinner, took place this weekend in Seattle. Kiitella’s custom awards are a fusion of steel, natural wool felt, and laminated birch ply… The honorees of this year’s AAC recognition awards include Kris McDivitt Tompkins, Mark Twight, David Riggs, David Stevenson, Mark Richey, Mark Kroese, Mason Earle, Vertical World and The North Face.
Free your heel… free your mind… World Telemark Day is next week in conjunction with the 2017 Karbon Telemark National Championships and the Freewheel Life Cup at Grand Targhee Resort, WY March 2-4. And Kiitella is very happy to create the awards again this year for the USTSA (US Telemark Ski Association).
Kiitella’s Power of Four Skimo medals go bright red this year! Same design — modeled after the classic ski pole basket, same heft with thick steel plate, just with a glossy red powdercoat finish. The Audi Power of Four Race Series is a premier endurance race consisting of 12K feet of vertical gain over 25 miles traversing the four Aspen Snowmass mountains. Race day is this Saturday, February 25 and registration is still open!
