How better to honor Bill Williamson’s 44 years in the ski industry, and his hard-working chocolate Lab retriever mix avy-dog Chaco, than with a vintage-meets-modern/industrial ski trophy by Kiitella. Riveted to the tops of both skis, a steel silhouette captures the classic image of Bill and Chaco skiing. A jet-cut steel plate, filled with words of recognition and thanks (from his friends at Schweitzer Mountain Ski Resort in Sandpoint, ID), rivets through both skis. And a hefty steel base holds the award title, “Bill Williamson / Career Achievement Award / 2018,” hand-stamped on a pewter plate. Lisa Issenberg – lover of Labs, skier, trophy maker – had much fun creating this one.
