Winter sports park

Sporty families and freestylers will find more variety on the Shuttleberg than in almost any other area. The whole mountain is a huge winter sports park, which we are continuously expanding and improving. 

Which of our special slopes, ski routes and park lines would you like to ride first? Find out on this page!

Speed Course

Do you want to know how many seconds separate you from the top speeds of the Austrian Ski Team (140 km/h) or the world speed ski record (248 km/h)? On the permanent Speed Course you can race all the way down the course — at the end, a measuring bar records your speed, and on the display, you can see how fast you were. 

Every Thursday from 10 a.m. to 12 noon our Speed Race takes place here. If you take part, you can win great prizes! 

Location Speed Course: 

You will find the yellow starting house of the Speed Course on the red slope near the Powder Shuttle on the left side of the hill before entering the steeper part. 

Race Piste

On the Race Piste, you can compete with your friends for the fastest time. The start and finish bars record your time up to a hundredth of a second, while you concentrate on taking the giant slalom poles as tight as possible. Of course, the Race Piste is maintained daily. The fee for timekeeping is Euro 1,-.

Location Race Piste: 

The Race Piste is located on the slope along the Sunshine Shuttle on the right side. 

Cross Run

The Cross Run for boarder and ski crossers was built by the Absolut Park Shape Crew together with Austrian National Coach Gerald Kerschhackl and is used as a training course by many different national teams. 

It is designed so that everyone can ride at their own pace and have fun — no matter how long they have been skiing or snowboarding. 

LOCATION Cross Run

You can see the start of the cross run on the right above the Schüttalm restaurant. You can reach it from the top station of the Powder Shuttle, the Bubble Shuttle and the Lumberjack Shuttle.

The Stash

The Stash Park does not offer you perfectly groomed slopes, but instead, you can get creative. There are obstacles made of wood and snow integrated into the natural terrain, and you can usually ride them in several ways. The terrain also offers plenty of opportunities for powder runs.

Originally, Jake Burton and snowboard legend Craig Kelly had the idea for The Stash, and there are only six of these parks worldwide. The American artist Bob King made the hand-carved figures and obstacles.

LOCATION The Stash

The Stash starts below the top station of the Powder Shuttle, directly after the Lil' Stash, and extends all over the terrain to the bottom station.

Lil’ Stash

The Lil' Stash is an area with broad, easy to ride wooden boxes and rails, a wave track and three small kickers in a row. Here kids and beginners can slowly and without risk try first freestyle tricks before they venture to the larger obstacles in The Stash.

LOCATION Lil’ Stash

The Lil' Stash is located directly below the top station of the Powder Shuttle, on top of The Stash.

Absolut Park

The Absolut Park is not only Austria’s biggest snow park, but it is also one of the most famous terrain parks in the world. In an area of over 1.5 kilometres in length, freeskiers and snowboarders are spoilt with choice thanks to around 100 kickers, boxes and rails, which are maintained daily by an experienced shape crew.

Whether you are a pro or a freestyle beginner, there are different areas for different levels in the Absolut Park. You'll certainly find obstacles that suits your abilities.

Ski Touring

Our signposted ski tours take you up the Mooskopf, a high lookout point from which you can enjoy breathtaking mountain views. The ascent tracks run from both sides of the valley to the summit, so you can choose between two different tours.

You can use the signposted ski tours with a valid ski pass or with the discounted ski touring ticket, which includes two lift rides. 

Entrance ski tours

Flachauwinkl: Start next to the Beginner Lift
Kleinarl: Start next to the top station of the Champion Shuttle

Operating hours

The ascent tracks are open during the operating hours of the Shuttleberg, outside these times the general closure of the slopes applies. Due to the snow situation and the traffic on the slopes it may be necessary to block the ski tour or to limit it to the morning hours from 8.30 a.m. to 10 a.m. If the ski touring tracks are not open, you will find information about that in our News.

Chill House

The Chill House below the Jib Park is the freestyle scene’s meeting point. The light-flooded, two-storey building is equipped with a boulder wall, a skate mini ramp and several chill-out areas where you can watch freeski and snowboard videos or enjoy a snack. 

When the weather is sunny, numerous sofas and picnic tables invite you to relax outside with a great view of the Jib Park.
