Credited as being the first woman to stomp a 900 in competition, at the tender age of 13 no less, Elena Hight is halfpipe royalty. Not to be known as a one trick pony, she continues to push the limits of snowboarding and just this season Elena went out and nabbed the title of first snowboarder (male or female!) to land a double backside alley-oop rodeo in competition!
I’ll let that sink in for a moment…..
This season Elena has filmed a mini series of webisodes called “Hight Hopes”, for those playing along at home she’s dropped one of these beauties every month, with a different theme and stunning cinematography. The last installment, ‘Essence’, follows Elena into the BC backcountry for some perfect pillow lines and drool-worthy lines, sit back and enjoy the essence of snowboarding…..
