[ all cheer ]
2:08 am
this is the dream that is peace park. on down atlanta on down atltlta man: ...two, three -- peace park! [ all cheer ] the peace park is basically, like, this vision that danny is probably thinking about 24/7. like, what e ee can we do with snowboarding rather than just do the basic back-and-forth half-pipe or the four jumps in a row? davis: at the time we first started conceptualizing peace park, the shoots we were doing in the spring were getting realal repetitive -- just a jump or just a half-pipe. we wanted to ride everything. we wanted to make a much more interesting park -- make everything rideable and make something really unique to the mountain and the terrain. i really wanted to bring back more of a skate park feel to peace park this year with different sizes and transitions and jumps that all flow together and allow people to be really as creative as they want. my favorite feature -- i don't know, man. it's a really tough question. i mean, everything's really fun. i love riding the mini pipe. it's a perfect wayay
2:09 am
to kind of, like, bring g eryone down to the same level. my favorite feature is, by far, the half-pipe. it's cut perfectly. being on tt big tranny's so sick. the diamond feature we got up here is super rad. it's got some kick, it's got some tranny, gives you great speed to enter this bowl, coming in hot. the bowl is super dope. you can kind of shred it like a quarter pipe or you can hit it like a roll like snake run style. it's so big, and you can just ride into there with so much speed and choose your own line, and it's totally different. you don't see that very often. davis: we just experiment each year with something new, because it's'sun to ride new stuff. mitrani: the more creative the features, the more creative the riding, and that's danny's whole mission right now in life is to just keep growing snowboarding in not this techninil way, but this fun, creative way, as well, because to danny, being a pro snowboarder is just a dream come true. danny grew up in michigan, and man, would you look at this kid? he loved all sports. but when he got his first snowboard at age 8,, that's when things really took off. it didn't take long for him to master
2:10 am
and even before danny made it down to the bottom of the hill, he wasaslready chucking b bkflips. it was around this time that danny's uncle gave him his first snowboard video. the video gave danny his first look at professional snowboarding. and according to this journal entry from a young dan, he had his mind made up back t tn that pro snowboarding was gonna be his future. good grades, talent, and some help from the ross powers foundation earned danny a spot at stratton mountain school. here, he met some great friends and was able to focus all of his energy on snowboarding and competing -- lots of competing -- all-over-the-globe competing. danny took first place at the dew tour, second at the european open, and a win at the grand prix had danny in line to represent the united states at the olympics in 2010. then he got hurt pretty bad -- so bad, a lot of people didn't think that dny was gonna be able to make a comebackck it took danny two years to come back from that injury, and when he did, he took the entire snowboarding industry by storm. he wasn't just doing more flips and more spins.
2:11 am
for that, he won the x games back-to-back, and his new approach to the pipe made him a favorite amongst his fellow snowboarders and the industry as a whole. mitrani: not only did danny want to change the way he was riding half-pipe, but the half-pipe itself. mitrani: so in 2012, danny revolutionized the way half-pipes were built and ridden. he added rails and channels to a standard half-pipe, and that's when ththfirst peace pipe was born. the next year, there was only room for growth. he added some jumps and other features. and now, every spring, he and some of the best riders have put their creativity to the test on some of the most unique snowboard parks ever made by riders for riders. while danny's riding has been reshaping the way contests are judged, peace park has revolutionized the way that parks are built so that riders can continue to push the sport in a more fun and creative direction. you're tuned into peace park. don't go anywhere. we're coming right back after commercial. a little more next time, jack. i, amanda green, at the point of my life when i'm not a kid anymore.
2:12 am
i hereby agree to be boundo you. to let you decide how i spend my money. to let you set my boundaries. and to come running the instant you snap your fingers. with this contract, i relinquish part of my freedom to you. there's a contract in every cigigette. when you light up, you sign up.
2:13 am
do you really think that's a good idea? if everyone jumped off a cliff, would you do it too? you'll lose interest. it's just a phase. it hurts me more than it hurts you. where are your manners - were you raised by wolves? you're going to give me a heart attack. when you have kids, you'll understand. this is the lifefef a rebel.
2:14 am
i would say, if i had to describe peace park to a tot stranger,
2:15 am
i'd say it's kind of like a gaering of theorld's best snowboarders in a loosely formatted contest. it's all about, like, shooting video and shooting phototo and i think that's kind of what everyone's focused on -- just kind of having a good time and riding. that was tight. moore: it's just a reblly diverse group of people. we have guys who are, you know, strictly into jumping, guys like myself that are really just, like, back country and street riders, and then a whole bunch of, like, pipe and contest riders. so it's kind of like a cool mix of all these different styles of snowboarding, but we all have a lot of respect for each other. whoo! [ camera shutter clicks ] davis: we're a really good crew. whoo! i think we're all good friends. and it's really fun to hang with evebody. everybody's telling stories, hanging out, and i think that's cool. it was like... and then took off.
2:16 am
because it's one of the greatest mountains, and the people here are so good to us. they give us this lodge that we get to just take over, make our own, and jam out. we got enough h ew here that we f fl up the entire thing. and no one bothers us and we don't bother anybody -- or, at least, i don't think we are. [ rock music plays ] [ screams ] [ indistinct chatter ] [ applause, laughter ] kiss away the pain man: you know, everybody hanging together and riding together and doing laps together, eating together, it's just kind of -- i think it's just like a huge part of what snowboarding is to all of us. all the in-between snowboarding is, like, such a huge part of what we do, you know? it's just that camraderie. lago: just get, like, motivated, you know what i mean? it's like, "oh, well, like, he just went that big. like, hitch just launched, like, a 15-foot method on the quarter pe. time to step it up" type of thing, you know? and then all of a sudden, you're understanding it, too.
2:17 am
is just -- you really see how good a lot of these guys are. at contests, you don't really -- you get two runs or whatever it is, and it's a pretty routine, planned run. and here, you get to see, like, you know, ladley doing big back sevens on this and, like, roope riding pipe. and, you know, you just get to see how talented everyone truly is. look at that. boom! lago: just to come out here and just riff with your buddies, push each other -- that's the stuff, man. that's what we want to be doing, you know? just to, like,e,feed off of each o oer and grow and build together. and that's when the best snowboarding happens. mitrani: the sport of snowboarding needs peace park and other events like this because this is where you actually see the riders doing some of those really fun things that snowboarding's all about -- like, those surf-like maneuvers, the skate-like maneuvers. it's not a a about how high y y can go, how much you can flip and spin. it's all about just slashing the coping.
2:18 am
let the sun burn my eyes let it burn my back let it sear lago: carving and the butters are awesome, you know? i think it's, like, for once in snowboarding history, carving is cool. [ chuckles ] let it burn my back at the beach in my dreams but you still never gonna stop me you're never gonna stop me you're never gonna stop me you're never gonna stop king of the beach andrew: it's good to see people carving in 2015, especially with events like peace park, you know? it's'sind of like about really cultivating and embracing that creative side of snowboarding, you know? let the s burn my eyes let it burn my back
2:19 am
i'll feel wide, wide open at the beach in my jeans and it's wide, wiwi open at the beach in my dreams but you still you're never gonna stop me you're never gonna a op me you're never gonna stop me you're never gonna stop king of theeach oh! whoa! whoo-hoo! lago: the butter tricks -- there's so many, like, new ones, 'cause, you know, that's just happening right now. so no one really has names for them, i guess. like, a lot of people don't really name them. they just it 'cause it's fun, you know? man: i think springtime is the most fun to ride transitions, 'cause it just really feels like a wave. you're never gonna stop me you're never gonna stop me you're never gonna stop me
2:20 am
king of the beach man: the half-pipe is such an intimidating thing, so it's rad to see the guys who are so good at it break it down and haha fun in it, as well. they're not just there to do the most death-defying trick. there's also ripping around and doing butters and slashing the lip, and that seems to be the theme of the whole, you know, peace park. it's rip and have fununith your homies. aah! that was sick! [ applause ] mother nature, bless us once again not onlyith sun, but with popo we've never had a pow day at peace park, and when you don't have a schedule, when you play it kind of by ear, and like that surfing mentality, when the weather's goo we'll ride, and we'll ride peace park.
2:21 am
man: everyone loves to ride powder, right? it's that feeling that you get when you make that turn and it's just like "whoosh!" and then you make thatther one, and it's just like "whoosh!" we got lucky enough to get a powder day in the spring at peace park. just adds to the whole experience, you know? it's gonna make us froth when we ride some half-pipe later. i think we might even go rip the snowfield pipe today. just surfing it, dude!
2:22 am
davis: when we saw this system coming in, we talked to all the folks at targhee, and they're like, "you guys have that lift. it's yours." and to have a private lift with 20 of your good friends is such a treat. bretz: being gn contests all year, i don't really get the chance to ride pow at all. and having a pow day here at peace park is so much fun. ladley: one of the best parks ever built, and to ride it in a pow day... and then it's supposed to be sunny again, so back to the park in a couple days. yeah. you can't really ask for anything better. wells: just like with any winter event, weather is gonna play a big part of it. today, we got a good foot of snow. the guys were able to come up and session, ride powder, have a great time. and now tonight weave to go remove all that snow, so it's just a matter of pushing it out of the way, reestablishing all the transitions, and it should work out really good
2:23 am
every time you smoke, there's a xic mix of over 7,000 chemicals coming for you. when you're born in a place that took millions of years to form, you're inspired to cold-age your beer... ...which, thankfully, takes less than a million years.

2:25 am
moore: i think danny's one of the only guys who can really bring a group like this together to have such a rad event.
2:26 am
like, he loves to snowboard more than anyone that i've ever seen. you know, he'll ride all day. and he kind of, like, keeps the group motivated, kind of keeps the energy going. [ "runnin' down a dream" plays ] it was a beautiful day the sun beat down i had the radio on i was drivin' trees went by me and dell were singin' "little runaway" i was flyin' yeah, runnin' down a dream that never would come to me workin' on a mystery goin' whererer it leads runnin' down a dream

2:30 am
ooh, ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ooh [ cheers and applause ] lago: peace papa is kind of almost like a breeding ground for, like, creativity and, like, collaboration. grab all these different, really good snowboarders and you make this insane course and you put them all together and then people start doing crazy-different stuff. it's super sick, and it's a great way to progress the sport. i learned a couple new tricks yesterday because i got totoit stuff
2:31 am
that i never really get to see in a half-pipe, you know? i think that's, like, a good example of, like, how our features here at peace park kind of, like, help also the progression, too. man: this is more the future of snowboarding -- like, more creative stuff. if you have, like, regular slopes on a run with just, like, four jumps in a row, it kind of gets boring, 'cause everybody's gonna do the same type of tricks. but if you can mix it up with, like, redirect or sideslip, every rider sees something different, and that's the cool thing aboua park like this, like peace park. it has so many opportunities. i see this now in front of me, and i have, like, eight things that i could do right now, you know? and i feel like that's really, really sick. so everybody has his own choice. davis: i think snowboarding will always be changing. i think what peace park has really been helping do is influence everything in the way of making things more creative, making them more fun to ride. you look at all these contests going on, and a lot of them have been influenced by peace park,
2:32 am
u.s. open, they added transition to their slope-style course. that's something we haven't seen in a long time. anansure, it's still went jump, jump, jumpmp but it's just a step in the right direction, and really something that made that contest stick out this yea davis: all these cononsts, all these evenen, they're all in an effort to make new features and new stuff to ride on, show that there's more to snowboarding than the same half-pipe, same slope crse. i think it's starting to happen slowly, but it's happening, and that's really cool to see. [ all cheering ] there's a ton of room for snowboarding to progress in cool and creati ways, and that's what peace park's alalabout.
