On the surface, Whistler-based Mason Mashon lives a charmed life. If you follow his adventures from the peripheral world of Instagram the 32-year old who refuses to be defined by any one term—mountain biker snowboarder photographer artist TV host—appears to always be at the centre of something radical.
He’s surfing in Central America with his long-time girlfriend Diane. He’s photographing A-level freeride mountain bikers in remote B.C. locations. He’s floating above a bizarre Turkish landscape in a hot air balloon. He’s traveling across Russia on a ski trip…by train. Indeed the travels of Mashon are far-ranging unique and desirable but the life Mashon leads goes deeper than any Instagram profile could show.
