About Danny

Danny Davis has started a revolution. Whether intentional or not, he is at the forefront of a movement within competitive snowboarding -- a call to stray from the robotic technicality that ushered in the triple cork era and return to what snowboarders love to do -- have fun and look good doing it. Style and creativity drive his competitive formula, and it's worked: He's the only male snowboarder other than Shaun White to win back-to-back X Games SuperPipe gold medals (2014-2015). Danny created Peace Park, an invite-only, five-day "contest" (no judges or scores, only peer-chosen winners) on a unique, skatepark-influenced course. He and "frend" Jack Mitrani also started the Frendly Gathering, an annual music festival in Vermont.

  • 2014 and 2015 XG SuperPipe gold.

  • First to land 3 double corks in one run, using them to beat Shaun White at the 2010 Mammoth Mtn. Grand Prix.
