Sisu Magazine | Issue 2: Grounded

  • Why a magazine? Because world domination doesn't happen just from selling skis and snowboards. We've always had something to say and now we're making it official with our very own quarterly print magazine. 

Why the name Sisu? It's a Finnish word that embodies the spirit of perseverance, grit, and guts. It's the art of inner strength. And it couldn't describe our journey more.

If you’re excited about thought provoking articles, inspirational features, beautiful art, and compelling photography, all infused with the same passion, camaraderie, and grit you’ve come to know and love from Coalition Snow, you’ll love Sisu Magazine. Learn more about Sisu Magazine here.  

Issue Two: Grounded

The theme of this issue is Grounded. Inside our contributors are exploring topics that everyone is talking about—such as substance free experiences, to dealing with depression, to creating sacred and safe spaces—but often these conversations are whispers that are drowned out by a much larger and louder narrative that has become a pillar in the outdoors. Après following a day on the slopes and beers at the tailgate after a long ride. Summiting peaks, going big, and getting rad.

If that’s how you do the outdoors, you keep doing you. But if there is anything that we’ve learned over the years, it is that people experience the outdoors in very different ways. Those differences are not only stark and recognizable, they are valuable. They are helping to expand the perception of who plays in the outdoors, and why, and even what constitutes an outdoor experience.

Beyond exploring how we can become emotionally grounded by creating intentional spaces in the outdoors and talking about issues that have been incredibly stigmatized in our society, we also are examining the literal earth, from biodynamic farming to how we have created the concept of wilderness.
