As a two-time Olympic Silver medalist, Danny Kass rocks one of the most recognizable names on the Winter Dew Tour roster. A versatile rider, the 26-year-old has carved a niche in snowboard history by his then-unprecedented of two back-to-back 1080s in a superpipe. The New Jersey-native, when not winning poker games or overseeing his company Grenade Gloves, is busy plotting his assault on the upcoming season from his home-base in Portland, Oregon. He was the first rider to successfully land back to back 1080s in competition, at the 2002 US Open, starting off what fans describe as a "firestorm" of halfpipe progression within the top tiers of the snowboard community. His signature trick, the Backside Rodeo or Kassarole, is one of the most difficult and impressive inverted spins that can be done on a snowboard. His achievements include silver medals in both the 2002 Winter Olympics and 2006 Winter Olympics, three US Open golds, several medals in the X Games, and much more. Together, with his brother Matt Kass and several friends, he formed the company Grenade Gloves, which began making snowboard gloves and soon expanded into the snowboard outerwear and street apparel market. Danny currently lives in Portland, Oregon.
