REVIEW SPRING BATTLE 2021

Last winter, the Jib King took place in a corona-save online format and it was a great success. For the online video contest each rider filmed one trick on the branded obstacles in the Jib Park and uploaded it on her/his instagram channel using #jibking21 or #jibkingmaster21 (for the masters category). 

Pro riders showed their best trick on the stairset, amateurs on the branded rail in the Jib Park. Masters (30 years and older) could choose one of the two branded obstacles. 

The prize giving took place online on January 26th.

REVIEW SPRING BATTLE 2021


In 2002 the first SPRING BATTLE took place in Absolut Park. Over the past years, we always had creative formats and awards, constantly changing and updated. An evolving event format, always up to date and in tune with the zeitgeist.

This year in its 19th edition and due to the current Covid-19 situation, we adapted to the restrictions and held the Spring Battle 2021 as BEST TRICK INSTAGRAM ONLINE CONTEST with a total prize money purse of 74.000 US$.

The main changes from the past year’s format: The focus was on four BEST TRICK AWARDS instead of the full slopestyle runs of the past. Also the event was ‘digitally global’, meaning the invited riders and their filmers did not necessarily have to be present on site, but could film their entries to the four categories anywhere in the world during the event’s time window from February 26th till March 5th 2021.

Only invited riders were allowed to participate globally, whereas the event on site at Absolut Park was open for any rider wanting to participate.

As usual, SPRING BATTLE 2021 has been welcoming the best women and men in snowboarding and freeskiing on the globe.
