From Uganda to Jackson Hole - A Snowboard Brotherhood

Born in Kampala, Uganda, Brolin found sanctuary in the unlikely sport of snowboarding when he immigrated to the States as a 12 year old. He found his way to Jackson after being adopted into the Hessler family.

The Hessler boys were already avid snowboarders and Brolin quickly fell in to the ranks. While living in Jackson, Brolin discovered the community and terrain that would help propel his snowboarding to new levels. Ten years later, Brolin is well on his way to becoming the first African to ever snowboard in the Winter Olympics and attending medical school.

This is the story about unbreakable bonds and the ultimate snowboarding brotherhood.
