Freestyle Park in Flachauwinkl Salzburg
The Absolut Park
During the past few years, the Absolut Park on the Shuttleberg Flachauwinkl-Kleinarl has become established as a true European freestyle Mecca.
The entire park area stretches over a length of over 1.5 km, which is divided into 5 sections and is equipped with an extremely wide and varied range of obstacles. No matter which level, from beginner to pro: The Absolut Park offers everything that the freestyle heart could desire.
With the new 5-kicker line that can truly hold its own in an international comparison, the Absolut Park sets new standards and offers an internationally top level set up. On top of that, the 2-kicker line in the upper sector has been reconstructed to create a 3-kicker line. This is where the Spring Battle, Austria’s most famous mountain snowboard contest, takes place.
2 Rail Line
The next section of the Park is the rail line; here jibbers will find a large choice of rails and boxes. The creativity of the Shape Crew and their affiliation with the scene means that new and special obstacles are constantly being developed and built.
The third section is the 100-metre long Halfpipe with 4 metre high walls. Our “small” pipe is ideal for anyone who wants to ride an easy pipe or for those wanting to try out the Superpipe.
4 Jib Park
At the lower part of the Absolut Park there is the jib park. This is entirely devoted to obstacles that are fun. It is the perfect spot for beginners and for learning new tricks. At the end of the Park is the Chill House with a Spine mini-ramp (so don’t forget your skateboard), boulder wall, video screens showing the latest action sport movies and a homely Chill area. A real eye catcher in the Chill House is the huge Graffiti by the Permanent Unit from Graz (www.permanent-unit.com).
5 Superpipe and special obstacles
At the Family Shuttle area there is the Superpipe the staircase and other different Jib Obstacles.
Not only are the dimensions of the Superpipe exactly the same as in the X Games and in line with Olympic standards, but a number of top professionals and European national teams have found this to be the perfect spot with ideal conditions, which is why many of them trained here last year. The Superpipe is kept in perfect shape throughout the season by no less than John Melville, the eminent shaping expert from New Zealand and head shaper of the biggest snowboard contests around the world.
