A Talk with National Champion James Southam

FasterSkierNovember 29, 2005

One of the top U.S. skiers not on the national team, Alaska native James Southam has been moving up the results for many years. Last season at Soldier Hollow (UT) he finally captured his first national championship.

Right now James is training in West Yellowstone, MT along with a majority of the rest of the elite racers in the country. We talked earlier in the week about his training, goals, path through college and more:

How did this summer’s training go?

– It went really well. I was healthy all summer and I was able to pretty much do everything I wanted to, and made some pretty big changes to the training program. It seems to be working. I’ve been feeling in better shape now than I was last year.
