Kiitella Medals: U.S. Freestyle National Championships-Moguls @ Waterville Valley, New Hampshire



Congratulations Keaton McCargo! “So proud of, and happy for, my sweet amazing friend… winning the GOLD! And thrilled to have made her medal!” – says metal artist Lisa Issenberg.

At the 2018 US Freestyle Championships-Moguls, hosted by Waterville Valley March 20-24, winners are awarded medals custom designed and fabricated by Lisa Issenberg, of Kiitellä. The “gold, silver and 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 (Waterville Valley Black and Blue Trail Smashers) Freestyle “team” with coaches Nick & Susie Preston. See if you can pick her out in this 80s blast…
