Absinthe Microdose: Elena Hight – Episode 4

After not making the Olympic team in 2014, Elena dealt with the reckoning of what snowboarding meant to her and was ushered into the mountains by Hana Beaman and friends. Over the next few years, she went deeper into the backcountry, exploring AK with Jamie Anderson, and ultimately joining Jeremy Jones on a splitboard mission. In this episode of Absinthe Films’ Microdose, Elena talks about the shift in her focus and moving toward bigger mountains.
