Playlist: Slay the Slush

Please note this listing is for the digital version of Issue 6; all print copies have sold out. After you place your order we will email you a link to download the digital version.As we put the finishing touches on Issue 6: Making Waves, we are in the middle of an unprecedented global pandemic. By the time you read this issue, the world will be different than it is now and this rapid, disruptive change will likely be the new normal for months to come.
While we are well aware of the immense challenges and suffering that the coronavirus has unleashed upon us, we find solace in contemplating what the future could hold if we choose to use this moment in time as a reset: a minimum basic income, universal healthcare, flexible and remote work, paid leave, an earth that can breathe again because we slowed everything down.
It’s fitting that the theme of this issue is Making Waves, as our way forward will be created by people who are willing to challenge the status quo. This issue contains stories about the people who have always challenged taken-for-granted beliefs that have held us back in so many ways.
Now that we have all been forced to slow down, there’s more time to absorb the words, photography, and art of our contributors. From Kanoa Greene who never saw a woman like herself on a surfboard, to Christina Lustenberger who has carved out her own place in big mountain skiing, to two friends who didn’t allow a border to stop them from creating a life-long bond with each other, this issue is dedicated to the individuals who push back. The beauty in it all is what emerges from their seemingly small acts of resistance.
We hope that as you flip through the pages of Issue 6, you are inspired to think about how you can make waves during this historic time. It’s what is going to get us to the other side.
Thank you to Karukinka for helping to make this issue possible by sponsoring the bi-lingual story "The Pull of Patagonia," written by Emily Hopcian and Carolina Ibarra.
Issue 6: Making Waves will ship the end of April. All Annual Subscribers will receive free access to the digital version in advance.

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.
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.
