Congratulations to Mikaela Shiffrin of Vail, CO, USA ~ who won both the Slalom and Giant Slalom at the Audi FIS Ski World Cup this weekend at Squaw Valley and left with two (more!) of Kiitella’s custom made awards. The stainless steel “skis” are modeled after vintage wooden boards and measure about 15″ tall. The Squaw Valley shield logo is jet cut through the top of one ski, balancing the 1, 2 or 3 riveted to the other, while the vintage/modern event graphics are framed within a window at the base. Congratulations also to the Slalom and Giant Slalom 2nd and 3rd place winners: Sarka Strachova of the Czech Republic, Bernadette Schild of Austria, Federica Brignone of Italy and Tessa Worley of France.
