To Uganda With Skis

“The Mubuku River is too high – too high for the dry season,” our Ugandan guide John says, shaking his head. He fears we might not be able to cross the footbridge ahead. We’ve only been hiking for a few hours and already the trail is lapped over by whitewash. The river rampages through the rainforest right next to us. It is the kind of water that would make the evening news back home – the kind of water that leaves people stranded on their rooftops while a TV helicopter hovers nearby.

If your dog looks like an Alaskan malamute or a Swiss mountain dog, chances are your pooch takes to snow like a five-year-old Norwegian kid.

59th Annual Warren Miller Film Tour

The opening footage of Warren Miller’s 59th annual homage to the global ski lifestyle, “Children of Winter,” features two Tahoe locals who run an Alaska heli-ski operation, two race-bred Olympians and a converted fishing trawler with a heli pad cruising the Chugach Range of maritime Alaska. The floating foursome picks off virgin big mountain peaks like they’re shooting ducks at a carnival booth.

    Have you picked up Issue #133 yet? Our cover photo of Sustainable Surf ambassador Ashley Lloyd conveys the feeling of summer better than any image we’ve seen in a long time. The photo was taken by Bryan “@WetFeet” Garrison and we invite you to soak in the wholesome summer vibes and take them wherever you go.

    As you may know we took a brief pause in publishing because we were dealing with some health issues and burnout from the winter. We believe in keeping Adventure Sports Journal free for everyone, because the outdoors should be free for everyone. However, our costs are high, and we rely on our readers and advertisers to stay available in print.
