Planks is a rider-owned freeski clothing company born out of three decades absorbed in skiing and having fun in the mountains. Starting as a close-knit group of British skiers in Val D’Isere, taking inspiration from their personal ski style, a life spent in the mountains and street culture; the Planks community has now grown into an international family. Planks is a young-at-heart, fun freeski brand for everybody; whether you're hitting backcountry kickers, ripping big-mountain lines, shredding endless park laps or cruising the mountain with friends.
Planks convey this perfectly themselves: “At Planks we don’t believe in exclusivity, we believe in great products that everybody should be able to enjoy. We are skiers! The functionality of our products is at the forefront of everything we do. We strive to make simple, practical garments that can be enjoyed on or off the hill. Our products first and foremost must ‘work’ for you: they must be able to endure everyday mountain life. Our passion is to make the highest quality products we can, whilst still being accessible to everyone who loves the mountains. Live. Ski. Enjoy. #DropCliffsNotBombs
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.
