Powder Magazine and More Acquired by American Media Inc.

Powder, Surfer, Bike, and Snowboarder are a few publications that have been recently scooped up by American Media Inc (AMI).

It appears that the company is looking to move into the action sports realm.

According to Forbes, the media group acquired 14 adventure sports and media brands from TEN: Publishing’s Adventure Sports Network (ASN). All in all, it will boost the company’s sports category, which extends even to event management. The company will also now handle the Dew Tour and aims to execute several consumer experiential and content-driven events.

This isn’t the first time ASN has been acquired by new management. They’ve been moving from company to company consistently over the past few years, having been previously owned by Times Mirror Magazines, Time 4 Media, and TEN. In regards to the new change, ASN's office will remain in Carlsbad California.

Promising 14 inches of “blower” off-piste and “packed powder” everywhere else, the Marmot Mountain snow report eventually convinced 31-year-old rider Sam Rooney to get out of bed and rally for early turns, despite seeing sheets of rain falling outside his low-elevation residence.
