Contests

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.

Jib King

Jib King

DECEMBER, 11th - 31ST, 2021

Due to the current situation, we unfortunately have to cancel the Jib King in its usual form. However, we are motivated that some sort of Contest still takes place. Therefore we had the idea of a online video contest.

HOW TO COMPETE

Participants have to film ONE TRICK on the BRANDED OBSTACLES in the Jib Park and upload it on their IG MAIN FEED and use #APjibking21. There will be no registration, it is an Instagram only competition. The prize giving will be online on December 31st.

Spring Battle 2022

March, 12 - 16, 2022

At the end of March, freeski and snowboard pros from all over the world meet at Absolut Park for the Spring Battle, where they celebrate their season’s end with an innovative contest and showcase their skills on the demanding setup. The Spring Battle is a World Snowboarding Elite Level and an AFP Gold Event, but even so, fun and creativity are a priority at this relaxed jam session. The follow-cam format is super popular with the athletes; any registered rider handing in an uncut video in time, documenting his or her best run, will be judged. Riders can film each other for a couple of days, and therefore have enough time to step up their trick levels.


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.
