British Embassy Oslo met James Woods (X Games bronze medalist and World Cup gold medalist) at X Games Oslo 2016 yesterday as he began his practice runs before the competition begins tomorrow. James (or Woodsy as he is better known) lives life on the edge whilst skiing but fully supports our #skisafe campaign. Thousands of Brits travel abroad to ski or snowboard and along with Woodsy we are encouraging them all to make sure they have insurance and wear a helmet. Guidance on how you can best prepare for a skiing holiday can be found here.
