In the last 20 years, the Absolut Park has not only become the biggest snow park in Austria, but also one of the most famous European snow parks.
The entire park area extends over 1.5 km, is divided into seven sections and is equipped with a wide and varied range of around 100 obstacles. Our professional shape crew ensures perfect conditions on a daily basis.
No matter which level, beginner or pro: In the Absolut Park you will find everything your freestyle heart desires.
The upcoming season will start on December 5th, 2020, if the conditions and weather allow, we will start earlier. We are looking forward to see you in December.
Dear friends and guests,
The Corona virus (COVID-19-Virus) is spreading, the government of Salzburg is shutting down all winter sport resorts and accommodations. Sunday March 15th 2020 was the last day we were open and the winter season is over. All accommodations closed on Monday March 16th 2020. People’s health and safety is our top priority and respecting the rules is key in this very particular moment.
Thank you to all our friends and guests for a so far great season. We are already looking forward to see you again in December 2020.
You can find all governmental precautions under: https://www.salzburg.gv.at/themen/gesundheit/corona-virus#Ma%c3%9fnahmen
The Absolut Park Shape crew just can't sit still. Again this summer, they've worked and welded their best so that you can ride new, creative obstacles in winter. For example, a 1 meter diameter ball, a 6 meter long battleship box, a 6 meter flatrail, a 9 meter firecracker rail, a 10 meter S-rail and a Flatdonkey tube.
Matej Svancer is only 15 years old and already part of the Absolut Park team. Originally he comes from the Czech Republic, but his parents recognised his talent early and moved to Austria to be even closer to the mountains. Matej goes to the Freestyle-Gymnasium Saalfelden, where he has Martin Gimpl, a very experienced trainer at his side. "Martin is both personally and technically perfect," tells Matej enthusiastically.
The Absolut Park is divided into seven sections, which we present to you here.
Five kickers in a row offer you maximum airtime at an international top level. This is where the Spring Battle, Austria’s most famous on-mountain snowboard and freeski contest, takes place.
Here you will find all kinds of rails and jib obstacles, always new and creatively arranged: S-Rail, Barrel-Rail, Elbow-Rail, Kinked-Rail, Double Kinked-Rail, Straight Rails,...
The ideal place to work on your skills, practice new tricks and prepare for the bigger obstacles: The Beginner/Medium Line starts at the top station of the Absolut Shuttle and ends at the bottom station of the Powder Shuttle.
The Rail/Halfpipe Line is equipped with many different rails and ends in a funny, 100 meter long halfpipe with four meter high walls. It is ideal if you want to learn how to ride a pipe and try your first tricks.
In the lower part of the Absolut Park, directly in front of Chill House, you will find the ultimate playground for all jibbers: The Jib Park offers you many rails and boxes, which are easy and fun to ride. All shredders, regardless of their level, will have fun here.
Both beginners and advanced can ride the Cross Run, a top-maintained ski and boardercross course, without any problems — two separate starts for different levels to ensure this. It's best to race through together with your buddies!
The Stash Park does not offer you perfectly groomed slopes, but instead, you can get creative. There are obstacles made of wood and snow integrated into the natural terrain, and you can usually ride them in several ways. The area offers a lot of additional possibilities for natural jibs and powder runs.
Originally, Jake Burton and snowboard legend Craig Kelly had the idea for The Stash, and there are only six of these parks worldwide. The American artist Bob King made the hand-carved figures and obstacles.
Kids and beginners will find the Lil' Stash with its wide, simple wooden boxes and rails an ideal terrain to start freestyling.
The Chill House below the Jib Park is the freestyle scene’s meeting point. The light-flooded, two-storey building is equipped with a boulder wall and several chill-out areas where you can watch freeski and snowboard videos. Since last winter season, the Chill House is also pleasing to the eye: Inspiring paintings, photos and drawings from artists in the boardsport and freeski scene are shown on a regular basis. The highlight, however, is the skate mini ramp — the first of its kind on a mountain worldwide.
When the weather is sunny, numerous sofas and picnic tables invite you to have a snack outside, to relax or to watch friends and pros in the park.
Our slopes are open from 8:30 to 16:30. Outside these hours the slopes are closed and for safety reasons entering is forbidden.
