Truckee, CA — This week, Coalition Snow, a women-owned and operated ski and snowboard brand, introduces ‘Inside Voices,’ a weekly (and FREE) virtual small business support group and happy hour.
“Since we can’t spend time with you IRL, we wanted to create a way for us all to stay connected through these unprecedented times,” says Jen Gurecki, Coalition snow CEO. ‘There’s only one rule we ask you to follow: You don’t have to use your inside voice, but you must practice empathy and respect.”
Inside Voices Small Business Support Group, Wednesdays at 3 pm PST: This one-hour Zoom call is designed for anyone who owns a small business, is running a small non-profit, or is a freelancer. It will feature one special guest each week who will share how they are working through the COVID-19 induced changes, and it will be moderated by our CEO Jen Gurecki. We may not have all of the answers you need, but this will be a way to brainstorm and learn from one another.
The session will be fluid and conversational and will include ample Q&A time from guests. Coalition Snow will post the links here both for upcoming calls and past recordings. You can also find this information via the weekly emails they send out and on their social media, @coalitionsnow. REGISTER HERE for their first call featuring Amanda Goad of BoldBrew.
Inside Voices Happy Hour, Thursdays at 5 pm PST: Head on over to the Coalition Snow Instagram for a live Happy Hour featuring our CEO Jen Gurecki and fun friends. Bring your glass of wine, sparkling water, or jug of gin–you be you. This is open to any human who wants to connect in a virtual community.
Their first guest will be Andrea Slusarski of Drawing From Nature who will share how creativity is a tool we can use to help navigate times of chaos and crisis. Future guests include Jenny Bruso of Unlikely Hikers, Lila Leatherman of Lamella Consulting, and Aparna Rajagopal-Durbin of the Avarna Group.

“To all of the parents who don’t know what to do with your children; to the students whose home is school; to the healthcare workers on the front line; to those of you who have been targets of aggression and racism; to all of the people who aren’t working, not getting paid leave, and have no safety net: Our hearts go out to you,” says Gurecki. ”As a small business, we have already felt the effects and understand that it doesn’t take that much to shut a small business down. It’s already hard enough, and this could be the thing that we just can’t bounce back from. But here’s what we know: We want our future selves to be proud of how we act today and how we take care of our communities, our loved ones, and ourselves. There are no easy answers, and everything is complicated and rapidly evolving. We will expect more changes and will embrace them knowing that we must flatten the curve.”
About Coalition Snow
Coalition Snow started with a team of women from Lake Tahoe who knew we couldn’t sit around and wait for someone else to design the equipment that would help us push our limits, master our skills, and feel confident and alive on the mountain. So we took things into our own hands and launched the world’s first company specializing in performance skis and snowboards designed by women, for women. www.coalitionsnow.com
