Was that really England's first Winter medal?

According to this article, Jenny Jones just won "Britain's first ever" Winter Olympic medal.  That seems fascinating to me given the proximity of the U.K to some of the winter sports capitals of the world.   Are winter sports not a big deal in the U.K.?
