British ski outerwear and apparel brand Planks celebrate their heritage with their #PlanksGrassroots tour that sees them visit snowdomes and dry slopes across the UK and a special trip to the phenomenal looking Copenhill slope atop a waste-to-energy plant in Copenhagen.
Press Release: Coming from the UK, we never had epic powder days, perfectly built parks or world-class pros to watch and learn from. All we had were a few plastic bristles and a whole lot of passion.
Inspired by our own grassroots heritage, it’s our mission to share this passion with as many humans as possible and build a worldwide community of skiers who are just as stoked on shredding as us.
Our Grassroots events create a super-inclusive environment where local riders can ski with world class athletes, inspiring them for years to come. But most importantly they bring people together and help create a stronger community of skiers.
The Progression Session
It doesn’t matter If you are a beginner learning your first box or you are trying to turn that 360 into a 720, our team of riders will be on hand throughout the session to help you nail those tricks. This is the perfect relaxed atmosphere to come shred with us!
Jam Format Competition
We will be finishing each event with a jam format competition. There will be great prizes on offer from all our partners including the chance to compete in the finals at the Telegraph Ski & Snowboard Festival for our top riders of the night.
Tell A Friend Tour
This year we have some very special guests coming all the way from the USA! Andy Parry, from the world famous internet video series The Line Traveling Circus, is bringing his crew of ski wizards with the Tell a Friend Tour!
Tell your friends! This is an event not to be missed!
The Freeski Demo
This year we will also be teaming up with our favourite ski brands, giving you guys the chance to demo next years hottest skis at some of the events. This is the perfect opportunity for you to try before you buy, so don’t miss out.
