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.
We plan to start the next winter season in full operation mode December 1st 2018.
Pre opening weekends of the Absolut Park in November, like in the last winters, are planned again if possible.
The Absolut Park is celebrating its 20th birthday! Between the Spring Battle and the season end (22.04.2019) we will host a six-week anniversary program in the entire park area with photo and video shootings, events such as the 10th anniversary of The Stash, a Cash For Trick session and a Banked Slalom, special and even more obstacles and extended runs in The Stash and in the Absolut Park. Stay tuned for more information!
During the summer the Absolut Park Shape crew welded and hammered everything they could - to surprise you this winter with a brand new Stair Set. It consists of a Stepdown Rail, a Down Rail, a Double Kinked Rail and a Ledge with a Creeper Rail and will be located at the end of the Jib Park as usual.
Besides, the guys built six new rails for you: A nine-metre long Doublekinked Rail, two Straight Rails, an eight-meter-long Elbow Rail, a six-meter-long Rainbow Rail and a seven-meter Wave Rail. Have fun!
Ståle Sandbech and Torgeir Bergrem have a lot in common: Both are Norwegians, travel a lot together and are often in front of the camera in twos on YouTube. Starting this winter season, they will also be team buddies in the Absolut Park Team and will undoubtedly be pulling their laps around the park more often than before. Welcome to the team
The fresh 3D sequence of Ståle Sandbech was shot by Markus Fischer. Big up!
The natural park is already ten years old, but still as cool as on the first day. This season we have extended the Lil' Stash, the easy to ride part below the Powder Shuttle top station.
We have added a second start to the Cross Run, our boarder- and ski-cross track. Now beginners and advanced can start into the wild race track according to their level.

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 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.
