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.
The Jib King has been rescheduled this season and will take place in December 2018. Besides, we have added two new categories to the amateur contest: Sponsored Riders for freeskiers and snowboarders with sponsorship contracts and Masters for the slightly older semesters (over 30). Both categories are open to men and women, with prize money waiting for the sponsored riders, while the others can win high-quality prizes.
- Kids (boys up to 12 years)
- Rookies (boys up to 15 years)
- Men (from 16 years)
- Women (from 13 years)
- Masters (over 30)
As always, the top-ranked men will continue to the Absolut Park stair set for the finals.
Thanks to a broad selection of obstacles, the Jib Park offers many options to show individual trick-combos. It’s not spin-to-win that counts here, but how creative, stylish, and technical you ride. Next to four trophies many valuable prizes are waiting for the four Jib Queens and Kings.
If you are interested in participating in the Jib King, you can sign up at Chill House on the day of the contest.

At the end 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 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.
