The addition of the new slopestlye events has helped boost team numbers, with both the men's and women's team in with a real chance of medal success.



James Woods (Woodsy)
Is current FIS Slopestyle World Cup Champion and has a couple of X-games bronzes.

Katie Summmerhayes
Has regularly been picking up silver and bronze in the world cup over the last few seasons, and is in with a real shout of a podium place.


Chemmy Alcott
The darling of the UK ski world has had an injury hit season but, fingers crossed, will be fit for the games.

Dave Ryding
Has hit some good form, and hopes to improve on his 27th in the slalom at Whistler four years ago. 


Rowan Cheshire
Is in top form, with a recent win in a Calgary World Cup event. She has a world ranking of 7th, so could, with a bit of luck, pull off a second gold this season with a win in Sochi.

Emma Lonsdale
Best result this year was 10th in Calgary, and she is hoping to use her experience for an improvement in Sochi.

James Machon
Has had two top twenty finishes this season after a long time out with injury, and could surprise a few of the more fancied athletes.
Murray Buchan
The Scot, now based in Breckenridge, is the British Champion and has a world ranking of 28th - - and will be giving his all in Sochi.



Andrew Musgrave
Andrew surprised the Nordic world by winning the Norwegian National Championships this season (I bet there were a few athletes getting a good talking to by their coaches post event!) Andrew has a real chance of a medal in an event that we often don't even compete in.
Andrew will be joined by Andrew Young, Callum Smith and Rosamund Musgrave.


Lee-Steve Jackson
Lee is the first Briton ever to qualify for an Olympic biathlon pursuit event, and has time away from his day job as a Lance-Corporal with Second Battalion The Yorkshire Regiment, to compete in his second Games, after a 55th finish in Vancouver.

Amanda Lightfoot
Amanda, like Lee, has experience in the army, and is only the second ever Brit to compete in the Biathlon.


Snowboard Cross

Zoe Gillings
Zoe, from the Isle of Man, has had more world cup podium finishes than any other British skier/snowboarder. This will be Zoe's third Olympic games, and we're all hoping she can add another podium to her already impressive career.


Jenny Jones

3 x-games golds will have everyone taking Jenny seriously, and she is possibly our most likely ski/snowboard gold medallist - no pressure there then!

Aimee Fuller
Is having her most successful season to date, having two had 5th place finishes this season - could be an outsider for the bronze.

Billy Morgan
Won the London Freeze big air in 2012, and is helped by his experience as a gymnast; Billy had surgery on a knee injury in 2013, but is now fighting fit and ready to go.

Jamie Nicholls
Jamie's laidback style could see him impress the judges, and he's hoping to back up some very good placings he's had this season -the best being 6th.


Dom Harington
Although Dom has been a member of the British snowboard team for a while now, this will be his first Olympics - a top ten finish would be a massive and well-earned achievement.

Ben Kilner
Ben is in good form this season, and is aiming to improve on his 18th place finish in Vancouver.
