The Big Picture. Part 2: Tech Trap. What if kids stopped playing outside?



What if kids stopped playing outside?
Today’s youth are constantly engaged with electronic devices and technological wonders, some that improve their experience on the mountain and some that hinder it. As the line between nature and technology blurs, how can we make sure that our children (and all of us) get the chance to unplug and get outside?

The Big Picture is a four-part series exploring big questions:

P1: Conflicted Obsessions - Is our thirst for adventure threatening our environment?
P2: Tech Trap - What if kids stopped playing outside?
P3: Pushing the boundaries - Is the pull of the backcountry pushing our limits?
P4: Survive or thrive - What's the future of ski resorts?
