The Absolut Park just wouldn’t be the same without its contests. They are a great platform for rookies and pros alike. And to make sure that all snowboarders and freeskiers are sure to get their money’s worth, we will be organizing our traditional Shuttleberg competitions again this year.
Every year, Absolut Park starts the contest season 2019/20 with the Jib King. The unique thing about this event: Jib King 2019 is open for everyone! Snowboarder and freeskier, boys and girls, amateurs and pros, they all can show their skills in the Absolut Jib Park and on the Absolut Park Stair Set.

Last sunday, Absolutpark was hosting the second stop of the ‘Cash4Tricks-tour‘. These events are open for everyone, giving the participants the opportunity to show their tricks in front of an audience. Two professional judges assess the showcased moves. If you get a ‘thumbs up’, you are rewarded instantly with a 5-Euro voucher for each trick.
More than 30 participants have been showing their best tricks this weekend in the Jib Park. The event was crowned with a session at the Stair Set, where the best of the riders were raising the bar once more. Check out our gallery and see for yourself!

At the middle of March, freeski and snowboard pros from all over the world meet in the Absolut Park for the Spring Battle, where they celebrate their season-end with an innovative contest and send it at the demanding setup.
The Spring Battle is a World Snowboarding Elite Level and an AFP Gold Event, but still, fun and creativity are the priority at the relaxed jam session. The follow cam format is very popular with the athletes; any registered rider handing in an uncut video in time, showing his or her best run, will be judged. Riders can film each other for a couple of days and have enough time to step up their trick level.
The ZSAEP Experience is a one-day freeski event in memoriam of Rainer Laa for rookies aged 18 and younger, who get a chance to show their skills at the Medium Line in the Absolut Park. You can register for free in the Chill House next to the Jib Park on the day of the event.
