Sweet Protection Piles on the Pow With Young-Gun Skiers in ‘Mixtape’

Two up-and-coming big-mountain freeride skiers are making a name for themselves in Sweet Pro’s latest short film.

Ski superstars Parkin Costain, 16, and Jake Hopfinger, 24, return to the digital screen in Benshi Creative‘s newest short, “Mixtape.” The two previously starred in the film “Dollar Short.”

Similar to their previous ski film pursuits, Costain and Hopfinger ride a storyline just as hard as they ride actual lines in the snow.
