Sisu Magazine | Issue 9 Mountaintop

  • $15.00

In this issue of Sisu, we explore our love of winter. From navigating the male-dominated sport of ice climbing , to skiing while fat, to the importance of mentorship, to preserving and using Indigenous names of the land, this issue is dedicated to all of the people who find joy when the days get shorter and colder.
