There's always something going on on the Shuttleberg! For kids we organise some wild parties on the Shuttleberg with the Crazy Dolls and life-size Easter bunnies. Meanwhile we invite all adults to the Mega Ski & Snowboard Test or to the SAAC Camp and we recommend the contests in the Absolut Park to freestylers. By the way, the contests in the park are also exciting to watch.
The SAAC Basic Camp is a three-day avalanche safety camp with theoretical and practical training for backcountry fans. You can sign up for the camp in fall at www.saac.at.
The Local Kids Camp is a snowboard freestyle and freeski camp for local kids. Pros from the snowboard and freeski scene train with you for four days in the Absolut Park. Under their qualified instruction you will learn new tricks quickly and easily and soon approach larger obstacles. In addition, a film and photo shoot with professional photographers and filmmakers is waiting for you.

If you would like to test the latest freeskis and snowboards, our Mega Ski & Snowboard Test is the right place for you. Renting and testing of the equipment is free of charge and includes competent advice. The event starts at 10:00 a.m. in front of the Chill House.
At the Easter Rabbit Party, bunnies are strapping on skis and boards. As well, all kids will be pleased by our fun egg hunt, huge Easter statues built of snow, an exciting scavenger hunt and a Crazy Doll surprise, which they can take home with them.
How many lift rides do you manage in half a day? Find out at the Shuttle Games! If you want to take part, you have to ride each of the seven shuttle lifts once, after that every further ascent counts, no matter which lift. Between 1 p.m. and 3:30 p.m., the winners are announced at our ticket offices where your lift ticket will be evaluated.
On Tuesdays at 1 p.m., enthusiastic children meet above Sun House for the Kids Day. On the Fun Run they can compete in a fun race, and as a reward receive a cool Crazy Dolls keyring.
For adrenalin junkies, the speed course on the Shuttleberg is just the right thing: between 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 noon, it's all about getting the fastest speed on a safe course. A high-quality helmet from Burton will be raffled off among the top 20; all others will be pleased with a beautiful Shuttleberg goodie.
The Jib King traditionally marks the start of the contest
season at Absolut Park. At this event (which happens in the Jib Park right above the Chill House) amateurs and pros alike can show off their jib skills. The contest is open for all skiers and snowboarders (women and men of all ages)! For the winners in the pro category, there’s a decent amount of prize money waiting; victorious amateurs will be rewarded with valuable non-cash prizes. Saturday is the day for the amateurs, while Sunday is the day for pros to shine. Registra-tion is at the Chill House each contest day.
Zum Spring Battle treffen sich Freeski- und Snowboard-Pros aus der ganzen Welt, um bei diesem innovativen Contest ihr Season-End zu feiern. Die Fahrer haben dabei fünf Tage Zeit, an ihren Tricks zu feilen und ihren perfekten Run zu zeigen. Das Follow Cam Format (die Rider filmen sich dabei gegenseitig) ist bei den Fahrern sehr beliebt: Jeder Teil-nehmer, der nach den fünf Contest-Tagen ein ungeschnittenes Video seines besten Runs einreicht, wird am letzten Tag von einer professionellen Judge Crew bewertet. Zusätzlich findet täglich ein Best Trick Contest statt. Der gesamte Event lässt sich übrigens auch online über spring-battle.com verfolgen!
Die ZSAEP Experience ist ein Freeski Contest für Nachwuchs-fahrer unter 18 Jahren, der auf der Medium Line im Absolut Park stattfindet. Die Anmeldung ist kostenlos und findet am Contest-Tag im Chill House statt.
