Gold, Silver and Bronze medals for GB skiers and snowboarders

Gold, Silver and Bronze medals for GB skiers and snowboarders A spectacular week for the GB Park and Pipe team continued over the weekend as James ‘Woodsy’ Woods claimed gold in the Ski Big Air at the X Games in Aspen. Woodsy landed 2 triple corks during his insane run to receive the victorious 88 points. 

Earlier in the day Woodsy just missed out on the podium in the Men’s Ski Slopestyle coming in 4th with 72 points after qualifying in first place with 94 points the previous day. The X Games is the largest freeskiing and snowboarding competition in the world, held at Aspen in Colorado for winter 2017.

Watch Woodsy's winning run here:

Katie Ormerod claimed her first X Games medal over the weekend receiving Bronze in the Women’s Snowboard Slopestyle with 80.33 points, behind American’s Jamie Anderson and Julia Marino.

Ormerod said after her medal: "I'm super happy to get my 1st X Games medal!! It's always been on my bucket list to medal here so I couldn't be happier! Especially to medal in the most high profile event of the season in such a tough and progressive field of riders."
