James Woods is an X Games gold medalist that hails from England. Let that sit in for a second. Growing up in Sheffield, Woodsy, as he’s known, learned how to shred on carpets that resembled tooth brushes more than they did snow…That never slowed him down as he’s proved himself on every level of the sport and has had an impressive career. This is a fun one with one of the only personalities in contest skiing today.
