Did you know? While skiing in Steamboat, Colo., in eighth grade, she fell into a 10-foot hole and was trapped for 30 minutes with her sister before climbing out. "We like to go out of bounds through the trees. We got stuck in a hole and couldn't get out and our ski group left us." Davis helped lift her sister out of the hole before she was helped out.
