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 at Absolut Park in Flachauwinkl, Austria. A slopestyle contest for freeskiers and snowboarders.

Spring Battle

The Spring Battle at Absolut Park Flachauwinkl is the biggest on-mountain contest in Europe for snowboarders and freeskiers.

Jib King

14. - 15. December 2019

Perfect conditions and top level riding at the first contest of the season at Absolut Park. 
The contest season 2019/20 has started at Absolut Park with its iconic Jib King. What makes it so special is the fact that this event is open for everyone:
Freeskiers and snowboarders, girls and boys, ams and pros. They all have equal chances to get one of the treasured trophies and call themselves Jib King or Jib Queen.

Whilst the amateurs and masters had the whole Jib Park to shred, the Stair Set was reserved for the pros. The shapers did an amazing job, all obstacles were in mint condition and even the weather was playing along. What else could you wish for an event?
On Saturday, it was time for the amateurs to shine, their playground being the whole Jib Park. Kids and Rookies also had their chance to show the adults how much they rip. The top four women and men also qualified for the pro contest on sunday.

Spring Battle

March 14 - 20, 2020

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.
