Jim Adlington - Planks Founder

I have been a Seasonaire for over 22 winters. My journey has taken me from working as a pot washer, night porter, DJ, bartender, pro skier and now owning my own ski company – Planks! The focus for me as always been the same, to ski as much as possible. So sleeping on people floors, being cramped into tiny studios, doing low paid jobs, struggling to find money to eat has all been part of it. Doing a ski season was the best decision I have ever made in my life. Why, because it's bloody good fun, who doesn’t enjoy skiing every day for 6 months. The friends I have made from my ski seasons have become my close family.
