For the latest episode of The Powell Movement’s podcast, Mike Powell sits down with one of freeskiing’s friendliest and most talented individuals, James “Woodsy” Woods. Originally from Sheffield, England, where he learned to ski on the bristled carpets that make up dryslope, Woodsy went on from his unlikely beginnings to prove himself on every level of the sport.

In this episode, the affable Brit discusses how he discovered skiing, who's influenced him along the way, competing in X Games and the Olympics, his rise to superstardom and more.
