Elena’s ‘Hight Hopes’: Chapter 1

Hight Hopes: Ch. 1, Preparation

What does it take to become an Olympian? In a six-part series, Hight Hopes follows Elena Hight on her third road to the Winter Games.

Last year at X Games, she threw the first double backside alley-op rodeo to be landed in a women’s competition. She went big, held the grab for what seemed like forever, and most importantly, threw in her own style.  This year, she’s treating the season with more fervor and fire than she’s ever taken, with the hope of an Olympic gold at the end of it all.
