Best day of the New Year so far? Riding pow in Switzerland after my plane caught on fire twice when we were trying to fly out there! [The airline de-boarded everyone and put them on a new plane.]

Best day of last year? Probably last March at Stratton, Vermont, taking home the pipe win at the US Open.

What's the latest with The Danny & Dingo show? We're planning season four right now.

What's the new with Grenade Gloves? Making gloves, not war.

What was your favorite Olympic moment? Scotty Lago putting down hammers in the finals and the US Team just handling—all of them Shaun, Greg, and Louie.

What took you out of the Olympic Ring toss? I fractured my leg around Halloween and had to miss some of the qualifiers.

How's your leg right now? It's doing a ton better. It's almost all good now.

Plans for the Spring? I'll film a bit for the Mammoth movie and try and shred some sweet places.

I heard you're maybe filming with Absinthe?

I'm just getting back into filming and I've been talking about jumping into the Absinthe crew. I hope to film full time next season …

What are you most hyped on right now? Jersey Shore!

How much time do you spend on Facebook? Not very much, I still like to use the phone.

What's the status of Grenade Games for this Spring? It's in Whistler, Canada! We're just finishing up graphics and planning some amazing events with Monster. It should go off and be bigger than last year.
