Planks Clothing’s Grassroots campaign is back for another year running. Grassroots is especially close to the British brand’s hearts, Founder and Creative Director Jim Adlington started out on the UK dryslopes before embarking on a successful career as a pro skier. The Planks Team also includes Grassroots athletes riders across the globe!
“We believe there is a huge talent pool currently emerging from a thriving dry ski slope and snow dome scene around the UK and on the mountains across Europe! We want to take the time to nurture, share and celebrate this talent.”
To honour this heritage and show their commitment to the future of skiing, Planks Clothing is pleased to launch for the second year running; Planks Grassroots!
