Planks Grassroots Tour
The UK never really had those epic powder days or the perfectly built parks and world-class athletes to watch and learn from, just a few plastic bristles and a whole lot of passion.
To honour their heritage, Planks Grassroots campaign aims to share their passion and support as many people as possible. The tour brings together local riders and global athletes so they can inspire each other and help generate a stronger community of skiers.
The Planks Grassroots Tour is back for the third year running and this time Ellis Brigham are joining the crew at SnowDome Tamworth. Expect the best parks, pro skiers from around the world, bags of prizes and good tunes in your ears. It's the perfect way to get stoked for Winter and everyone's invited.

This is your chance to come and shred with our crew of pro riders from the USA, Europe and around the UK, they will be handing out signed posters and free high fives. We will be cramming the entire slope with loads of different features for all abilities. We will be announcing all the athletes and publishing the final park plan in the next couple of weeks so keep checking back for updates.
Founder of Planks, the one and only Jim Adlington will be spinning tunes and bringing the vibes to the slope all night long so make sure you bring your dancing shoes and get ready for the good times!!
Riders and coaches will all be out on the slope helping you to take your riding to the next level during our progression session. So whether it’s your first time trying freestyle or you're looking to expand your bag of tricks, this is the perfect chance to learn something new.
After getting warmed up, we’ll be turning things up in our jam session, which is your chance to show our judges exactly what you can do. We’ll be focussing on different features and tricks giving everyone the chance to get involved with prizes for loads of different categories.
