  • Event Slopestyle
  • Date of Birth 19/01/1992
  • Born Sheffield, Yorkshire


James Woods learned to ski at the Sheffield Ski Village near his family home, winning five consecutive British national championships in slopestyle between 2007 and 2011.

He won the FIS Freestyle Skiing World Cup for slopestyle in the 2012-13 season, winning two rounds along the way, and claimed silver that year at the Freestyle World Championships – becoming only the second ever British medallist at World Championship level.

After winning the Big Air competition to take a first ever Winter X Games gold medal this winter, Woods is a man high on confidence.

The Sheffield free-skier suffered a hip injury in training for Sochi 2014; he competed through the pain and finished a remarkable fifth in the slopestyle, but will be hoping to be fully fit for PyeongChang 2018 to show the watching world exactly what he is capable of.
