Kiitella fabricated small, yet hefty, steel mountain trophies for this year’s American Mountain Guides Association (AMGA) honorees. The awards were presented at the 2017 Annual Meeting, held at the Petzl Technical Institute in SLC. The four awards… Guide of the Year: Marc Chauvin, President’s Award: Betsy Winter, Lifetime Achievement in Mountain Guiding: Alain Comeau, and Employee of the Year: Ed Crothers.
The AMGA also recognizes their Board of Directors for their time served with Kiitella’s custom pieces. This year, Eric Larson and Kurt Hicks received custom made “MountainTime” clocks… Art + function + recognition. The engraving on the back holds their name and years of service.
