Montana is a great place to grow up if “pro skier” tops your list of “what do I want to be when I grow up?” Lucky for Parkin Costain, those pro skier dreams have been reality for quite some time now—kickstarted by his 2015 TGR Grom Comp win and progressing to a partnership with Black Diamond—and his upbringing in the Treasure State has certainly played a role in it. If anything, it’s given him a keen sense of where to look in order to find some really unique ski lines, like the ones he styles in Make Believe. This season, he showed us some of his favorite backyard pillow stacks and probably some of the best fluted spine runs outside of AK. Following that, it was all about shredding with friends in the iconic spring skiing mecca of Beartooth Pass.
Costain’s career has progressed exponentially, starting with the TGR grom comp, continuing through multiple film parts, and culminating in a win at the 2020 Kings and Queens of Corbet’s comp. With a trajectory like that, we’re excited to see where he goes next.
