Danny Kass somehow manages to combine being a super-focused serial winner and business man with being a beer-chucking party animal. He has seven Winter X Games medals to his name, including a gold in the Superpipe (2001). In the same year he had one of the greatest medal runs in snowboarding history, picking up four US Open Championships and two Olympic silver medals, alongside his Winter X Games haul.
Born on September 21, 1982, in the Pequannock Township in New Jersey, Kass began snowboarding when he was 12-years-old. Growing up he used to ride at the Hidden Valley and Mountain Creek, up in the mountains of Vernon Township and Highland Lakes. He later joined the Okemo Mountain School in order to spend more time out on the slopes.
Famous for his technical and seemingly effortless riding style, Kass is respected by everyone in the snowboarding world. Kass has also become famous off the slopes as the result of The Adventures of Danny and the Dingo - a reality TV series on Fuel TV. It would be a mistake to let his party animal reputation fool you, as despite this, he continues to remain a major threat on the slopes.
