Elena Hight is a 27-year-old professional snowboarder, who was born in Kauai, Hawaii and raised in Lake Tahoe, California. Elena specializes in halfpipe and superpipe events, and she pulls off insane tricks that make me feel nauseous just thinking about them.

Elena is a two-time Olympian, competing at both the 2006 and 2010 Winter Games. Unfortunately for Elena, she is still searching for her first Olympic medal, as she finished 6th in 2006 and 10th in 2010 in the halfpipe.

But she has experienced a lot of success at the X Games, racking up four medals over her career. Elena has won two silver medals (2012, 2013) and two bronze medals (2007, 2011) in superpipe events at the X Games.

When Elena’s not shredding some fresh power, she’s been known to participate in blistering photo shoots. In 2013, she was featured in ESPN the Magazine’s Body Issue, and in 2014, she was on the cover of the February issue of Oxygen Magazine.

Elena will return to the X Games in 2017 to compete in the superpipe. Let’s do our part in wishing Elena good luck in snatching that elusive gold medal by taking a look at her hottest photos.
