James ‘Woodsy’ Woods won five consecutive British National Championships in slopestyle between 2007-2011, winning the FIS Freestyle Skiing World Cup for the same event in the 2012-13 season.

Later that year, he claimed silver at the Freestyle World Championships – becoming only the second ever British medallist at World Championship level.

After finishing fifth in the slopestyle at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games, Woods went on to win Winter X Games Big Air gold and Winter X Games Europe slopestyle bronze in 2017, before repeating the latter at the World Championships later that month.

He won the first World Cup of the Olympic season with slopestyle success in Cardrona, New Zealand.

Woods narrowly missed out on an Olympic Winter Games medal in PyeongChang in 2018, finishing in fourth, just 1.4 points off the bronze medal.
