Second chapter of ‘Hight Hopes’ available

The second chapter of the six-webisode series titled “Hight Hopes” is available online.

In the series, two-time Olympian Elena Hight continues her quest to make the elite U.S. women’s snowboard team for the Sochi Olympic Winter Games in “Hight Hopes, Chapter 2: Dedication.” The webisodes are available at youtube.com/ElenaHight. Chapter 2 follows Elena through the first qualifier at the Dew Tour in Breckenridge facing a standout field of Olympic veterans and hungry newcomers in an early winter mountain storm, according to a press release.

With less than two months until the world’s attention turns to Sochi, Hight now faces her final challenge to be one of the four American women to qualify for the snowboard halfpipe competition. Viewers will have a chance to join Hight along for the ride as she must not only excel at the final U.S. qualifiers, but also fulfill a steady stream of media obligations and sponsor responsibilities all while living a nomadic life on the road, the release stated.
