ELENA HIGHT ON THE STRUGGLE OF MAKING YOUR PASSION A PRIORITY IN THISFIRST INTERVIEW
What happens when you give all your blood, sweat, and tears and it just isn’t good enough? Elena Hight (@elenahight) is no stranger to the relentless work it takes to feed a passion. As a top contender in the women’s halfpipe contest circuit, a Winter X Games gold medalist, and a two-time Olympian, Elena understands the amount of dedication and sacrifice required to stand on top of the podium. "Everything that I do and think, and base my life around, is around snowboarding, and when it's not going good, there's almost no escape." Listen to Elena as she explains her obsession of achieving the impossible, quitting not being an option, and the ups and downs of putting your passion before everything, in this latest episode of ThisFirst.

VOLCOM WOMEN'S TEAM UP @ KITZ
Last March our global women’s snow army teamed up, cleared up a short window in their season and decided to defy the natural elements and do a team shoot in only a few days. They’d clearly done something right in the past as stars aligned letting the full script play out with blue bird park days, snowflakes the size of tennis balls and waist deep pow after the season’s biggest dump, to wrap things up. Cheryl making the Austrian landscape look even more amazing. Sarka Pancochova, Cheryl Maas, Elena Hight, Christy Prior and some family riders hanging close by; neighboring Switzerland’s own Joel Juchli “JJ” and the French Anouck Grau all rallying to do some true riding. A team that’s known for keeping busy with contests, Dew Tour, X-Games, Opens, FIS qualifiers… Olympics.. suffering from the typical “so many places to go and so little time” syndrome, sometimes deserves a bit of slack. A proper team trip at our favorite resort Kitzsteinhorn, in the Austrian Alps. The perfect spot when wanting to tackle everything. This was long overdue. A great chance for new and old riders to kick back and relax after all the contest madness and to think about what snowboarding really means to them. Little did we know, they took the assignment to heart and put on a shocking bar tab, some sick riding, chicken dancing and smiles so unforgettable they convinced us to step up the game for our next team trip. The Euro part of the team showing off their modeling skills. Christy's bs 180 japan air. A lot was scheduled for these intense few days together, including a round table with our outerwear designer Carolyn, but the team hustled, fuelled by each other’s energies, and this edit is the proof. Think we got ourselves the itch for another pow trip… Christy mastering her board with a style unlike others.   JJ and Kari traversing over to the park. Sarka's all smiles watching her teammates ride. JJ has the talent to slow down time when she locks in on a rail. Another lift back to the top of the pipe by Kitzsteinhorn's friendly park crew. Elena (left) and Sarka (right) playing with the sun. And then there was snow. Elena's on her way to shoot our Pika TDS Down Jacket Techstimonial. So much snow in fact that we spent most of the day riding waist deep in it. Kari occasionally got barried. Old tracks, new tracks.. it's all good fun when you for a brief moment get lost in a cloud of pow. The end of our last day, looking back at all the sick lines. Until next time. Big thanks to Active Hotel in Kaprun and all of Kitzsteinhorn with it’s more than “fine" snow park crew for treating us like royalty! Photo credit: Vanessa Andrieux

Boarding for Breast Cancer
To us, boarding isn’t just a weekend activity or momentary thrill. It brings us a sense of freedom, but more importantly a healthy and active lifestyle. These are also the building blocks of B4BC-Boarding for Breast Cancer, a non-profit foundation that brings awareness, education, support, and early-prevention to individuals and communities. Their ultimate vision is to celebrate life at every turn, both on and off a board and to inspire youth into positive styles of living. Today we get to talk to our snowboard team rider Elena Hight, who is a B4BC Snow Ambassador, along with Coco Ho, our surf team rider. How long have you been affiliated with B4BC? Elena: I have been an ambassador for B4BC for about 3 years. Out of all the organizations , why have joined this on? What attracted you to B4BC? Elena: I was attracted to B4BC because of their mission to not only educate young people about breast cancer and how it can effect them, but how B4BC believes that preventing breast cancer begins with living a healthy, active lifestyle. I truly believe that living a healthy, active lifestyle is the key to fighting so many diseases that can negatively effect our health, so I was very excited to partner with an organization that is actively spreading that message. Has breast cancer effected anyone close to you? Elena: I have been lucky enough to not have been effected by breast cancer in my lifetime yet. Name one female in the world you look up to/highly respect and why? Elena: I am extremely inspired by Serena and Venus Williams. They both overcame so much adversity to become the incredible worldwide known athletes they are today. I think its very admirable how they have taken their athletic careers to the next level and inspire women today on so many levels. Which female in the world do you look up to and highly respect? Coco: Thats so hard to choose! Beyonce and/or Sharapova for a lot of the same reasons- I love their style in what they do (simply the best!) Their ambition and passion for winning or being the best is present but not over bearing. They are stylish and super feminine when the time is right. They live their lives publicly in the most professional way. The perfect girls in my eyes.   Because no style makes you feel as good as one that’s created for a good cause, Volcom snow has partnered up with Boarding for Breast Cancer to offer our limited edition outerwear. Not only do these exclusive pieces include a unique B4BC print specifically designed to raise awareness, we will support your purchase by donating $1 to the foundation for each garment sold. It’s a simple way to make your day on the hill that much more meaningful.
