Congratulations Keaton McCargo! So proud of, and happy for, my sweet amazing friend. And thrilled to have made her 2018 gold medal!
At both the US Freestyle Championships-Moguls and US Alpine Championships, hosted by Waterville Valley, winners are awarded medals custom designed and fabricated by 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.
