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.
On saturday it’s time for the amateurs to shine on the obstacles in the Jib Park. It’s all about creativity and style to impress the judges and nick one of many Blue Tomato Vouchers with a combined value of 5,000 €. Since the lilltle ones should not come up short, there is also a kids- (up to 12 years) and a rookie-category (up to 15 years).
Sunday is the day for the pros: They gonna set the Absolut Park Stair Set on fire and battle for fame, fortune and 10,000€ prize money.

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!

The Spring Battle 2020 unfortunately had to be cancelled due to the spread of the corona virus (COVID-19) in Austria. The government of Salzburg ordered the closure of all skiing areas from 16.3.2020 and so we had to end the season in the park earlier.
Your health and safety are our top priority. But we promise you, we will make up for everything at the Spring Battle 2021!
The format: FollowCam and Best Trick Awards
Different from the usual rush at other events, the riders at Spring Battle have five full days of riding to work on their tricks and get their best run in the bag. Each of them teams up with a followcam filmer or an other rider while GoPro is supplying the necessary cameras and accessories. Each rider's favorite run (displayed on an uncut video clip and handed in until 3pm on Wednesday) will be judged by Wednesday night. The best clips will be shown at the big final show on Wednesday night and judged live in front of the audience.
In addition to the main contest, we are handing out three awards for the best Knuckle Trick (Sunday), best 540 (Monday) and best Rail Trick (Tuesday). Riders who want to participate have to post their best trick for each category on the respective day (until 3pm) on their instagram account. The winners will be announced each day at the daily ESBN Show at 7pm.
The Best Trick Awards have a total price purse of 12.000 US$.
