Rockstar Energy presents professional snowboarder Elena Hight at spring training camp at Mammoth. In Hight’s third year of the spring camp, she says the training is very beneficial to the athletes even though it is the end of the season. Spring training at Mammoth includes coaches and session trainings pushing the athletes to their limits as much as possible. Hight is working on a few maneuvers for the 2013-2014 season including double alley oops, twists and inverts. Training in the Mammoth air bag gives athletes the opportunity to practice new tricks safely.
“Taking a trick from the airbag to snow is one of the most gratifying feelings for sure. I mean, it’s easy to land on a big fluffy pillow all the time, but landing on the snow and knowing that you are progressing and riding that way is a really, really great feeling,” says Hight.
Hight also comments about the changes in the snowboard field in the next three to five years. She weighs on the importance for women to do more multiple doubles following the guys’ footsteps. “I think all the girls are gonna blow people’s minds.” – Elena Hight
