It might seem unusual for a snowsports brand to be talking about microlending in Kenya on Giving Tuesday. But today we're changing that by sharing the story behind Zawadisha.
Sisu Magazine | Issue 2 Grounded
Please note this listing is for the digital version of Issue 2; all print copies have sold out. After you place your order we will email you a link to download the digital version.
The theme of Issue Two 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.

Women Owned & Operated
We knew we deserved better equipment and a community that saw us, heard us, valued us, and put us front and center. So we said goodbye to shrink-it-and-pink-it and toxic bro culture and said hello to something more: a community that values camaraderie over competition, solidarity over sending, and compassion over cuntery.
We believe that the recipe for making a kick-ass pair of skis or snowboards has nothing to do with what's between your legs but what's between your ears and in your heart. We start with a concept that meets our unique needs and work with a team of engineers to bring our designs to life. We manufacture in reputable factories that prioritize the health and safety of their team and the environment. We test, bring in our Ambassadors and Athletes (did you know that our skis have been in the Olympics?), refine, and then deliver a finished product to you.
Building An Inclusive Community
From the beginning, we’ve been willing to do and say what our peers won’t. There is no place for the status quo, no room for hanging back, no time for wait or play it safe. In everything we create, we aim to make a positive impact in the world of snowsports and beyond. And that’s what makes us different. We're Coalition Snow, and we're the ones we've been waiting for.
