At the young age of 19, Parkin Costain is part of a generation that is often associated with excessive use and reliance on technology and electronics. In the latest episode of Slow Down Fast presented by REI, Costain shares his thoughts on the difficulty of unplugging and connecting to the real world. For him, skiing and being in the mountains is the best way to achieve it.
Coming back from missions, like this winter’s trip to Terrace, B.C. with Tim Durtschi and Colter Hinchliffe, reminds Costain of the importance of real connection with friends and family in his everyday life.
