Mammoth Unbound’s Main Park is serviced by Chair Six, a high-speed quad that takes only two minutes and forty seconds to ride. Just enough time to fire off a handful of questions to the many pros — like Danny Davis — who come through during the season.
: What brings you to Mammoth today?
Danny Davis: Well, sunny weather, a new year, and snowboarding.
: What’s your favorite feature in the park today?
DD: Bottom jump is pretty fun, banister rail always has been a favorite. Even since I was little getting to the end of that always feels good so ya know just having fun on a little bit of everything — but bottom jump is pretty darn good.
: What is your favorite Frends product?
DD: I wear the Clips actually, for earbuds, those are kinda my favorite ones. I snowboard in them every day.
: What do you think Scotty’s gonna have to do to win Big Air at X Games this year?
DD: Well…he’s probably gonna have to triple it up, which I don’t think is impossible. Gonna have to triple it up there Scotty.
Scotty Lago: haha yeahhhh I know
Triple cab, triple 9?
DD: Fine, if you wanna get technical, cab triple 14 then, that’s the trick that Scott’s gonna need.
: Any secret plans for yourself at X Games?
DD: I got no secret plans, I’m actually up here in Mammoth trying to get everything dialed for Killington and X Games, and we got some sunny days here so its looking pretty promising.
: If you could recruit anyone from history— dead or alive— to be a part of the Frends crew who would it be?
SL: Peter Line maybe,
SL: Sorry, not my interview
DD: Hahaha get your own fricken interview! I’m gonna go with Bob Marley or Neil Young, I can’t decide, but both, both would be great for Frends, and ya know…they’re legends.
