Five-Time Olympic Medal Coach Elijah Teter to Join Wy’East Mountain Academy & High Cascade Snowboard Camp

MT HOOD, OREGON, July 2nd, 2019 – Wy’East Mountain Academy and High Cascade Snowboard Camp announced today the addition of Elijah Teter as its Director of Snowboarding, where he will set the vision and direct the high performance snowboard-coaching program for both the academy and camp(s).


Over the past 30 years, Elijah Teter has done it all in snowboarding and has done so with excellence.  Formerly a professional snowboarder and member of the US Snowboard team, Elijah went on to be a highly successful Olympic coach, helping to secure three gold and two silver medals while working with athletes such as Ayumu Hirano, Kaitlyn Farrington, Louie Vito, Hannah Teter, and Kazu Kokubo.  

“Elijah joining our academy is the next step in Wy’East Mountain Academy becoming the world’s premier action sports academy,” said Kevin English, Academy president.  “Not only does Elijah have the years of coaching experience and Olympic medals on his resume, he is a true mentor to young students and his peers alike.”

Teter will be working hands-on in the development of the snowboard program, recruiting and working with both athletes and coaches.  Because of his renowned ability to rapidly progress athletes of any ability, Elijah will be seeking goal-oriented athletes, with his aim to not only develop exceptional snowboarders, but exceptional humans.

“I flipping love snowboarding!” said Teter emphatically, “I love teaching, I love progression in athletics, and most importantly, I love reaching your highest potential as a person. I have been part of and worked alongside some great programs around the world, and to have the opportunity to lead the direction of this snowboard program, shaping it into something I can really be proud of, it gives me goose bumps thinking of the possibilities.”


As part of this program, Teter and his coaching staff will offer multiple high performance sessions throughout the year at resorts nationwide, the first of which will take place this summer at High Cascade July 26th – August 2nd. These sessions will include sports psychology, dry-land and on-hill training and will focus on helping athletes progress their tricks and style to become better snowboarders and competitors while giving athletes a sampling of the intense year-round academy program.
