LPP #90 James "Woodsy" Woods
James "Woodsy" Woods, has been travelling the world competing on the Slopestyle and Big Air circuit for the better part of a decade. He is still just as stoked about it now as he has ever been.
While in Whistler, Woodsy came to the LPP Studios for a chat during his yearly visit to Momentum Ski Camps on the Horstman Glacier. Born and raised in Sheffield England, he may seem like a bit of an anomaly. How does one of the most consistent competition skiers get to his level coming from a snowless town in the middle of the UK? The answer? Dry Slope.

Sheffield Ski Village is where he caught the skiing bug even though he didn't touch snow for a couple years. Woodsy shares his journey about coming up and skiing dry slopes and about the "fantastic" scene surrounding it within his home nation.
We chat about his Gyspy lifestyle, his unwavering and enduring love for skiing, the X Games vs Olympics debate as well as his activities away from skiing and his plans for the future. James is a great guy with positive, infectious energy. Soak it up!
