Shuttleberg Flachauwinkl - Kleinarl
The number one resort for active families and freestylers

Located between the ski resorts Flachauwinkl and Kleinarl, the Shuttleberg mountain attracts visitors with a wide variety of runs for all levels, fast and comfortable ski lifts, and a unique setup for freestyle snowboarders and freeskiers.

Sporting families love the Shuttleberg Flachauwinkl - Kleinarl for its myriad of offerings for families, but also freestyle-loving snowboarders and freeskiers from all around the world happily return year after year. The Shuttleberg bridges the gap between well-groomed slopes with guaranteed superb snow conditions, creative ideas for active families, and a top-notch park for the freestyle scene.

Absolut(e) freestyle
The Absolut Park, one of Europe’s biggest terrain parks, features countless perfectly shaped obstacles for ambitious freeskiers and snowboarders. There is a line for all levels, from beginners to pros. Burton’s natural Stash® park completes the freestyle portfolio and is perfect for powder fans, who also  are catered to by secure, signposted off-piste routes. In a final state, the park offers around 100 features, which are redesigned or repositioned every season.

Fun and Action for parents and kids
Kids can enjoy the Family Run and Fun Run or learn their first freestyle tricks from well-trained ski and snowboard instructors in the Absolut School, while speed junkies can put their pedal to the metal on a permanent speed course and in speed skiing competitions. Since last year, the Shuttleberg resort also offers designated climbing routes for ski tourers on their slopes, which guarantee a save ascent.

Modern service and comfort
To ensure that you spend as much time as possible on your skis or snowboard, the Shuttleberg Flachauwinkl - Kleinarl is equipped exclusively with modern chairlifts that carry up to six passengers.

Easy to reach
The Shuttleberg Flachauwinkl - Kleinarl is easily accessible thanks to its own motorway turn-off (Flachauwinkl) on the A6 Tauernautobahn motorway. Also, the ski busses are offering rides to Flachauwinkl and Kleinarl regularly from the surrounding villages.

News at Shuttleberg Flachauwinkl - Kleinarl

Family Run: 19 kilometres, 19 stations
The Family Run is no normal piste; it’s an activity slope for the enjoyment of both kids and adults, who like to explore the Shuttleberg in a fun way. This easy course, which follows blue slopes and wide tracks, was extended for the 2016/17 season and now leads over the whole mountain down to the valley of Kleinarl. Dotted along the signposted route are the cheerful wooden Crazy Shuttleberg Doll points and at each of them, visitors can collect a Crazy Doll stamp. For kids, who visited all the wooden points, a Crazy Dolls Pixie book and cool stickers are waiting at the cash desks.

40 certified kilometres of pistes
If you count in all slopes, ski routes, and park lines, the Shuttleberg Flachauwinkl-Kleinarl offers 40 kilometres of winter sports fun, that have been certified by the independent quality seal by Montenius Consult (www.pistenlaengen.com).

Absolut Park goes Kleinarl
Banked slaloms and carving the slopes are quite a hype at the moment, which is well known at Shuttleberg mountain. So the resort presents a new border- and ski-cross course next to the Fürstwandlift in Kleinarl. Thanks to the Cross Run, the Absolut Park opens its doors at the Kleinarl side of the resort for the first time. Let’s get those rusty racing skills going again!

Guaranteed snow the whole season
Thanks to the brand-new reservoir, the water volume for snow production could be tripled compared to 2016! The reservoir is the biggest of its kind in Austria and the reliability of snow coverage has improved massively, even in winters without a lot of snow. As soon as the temperatures start dropping, the resort can open in four days time, because all five Shuttles have their own artificial snowblowers now. Even the park can be set up in the same amount of time and one line will be ready for the season’s first park runs. All of that is absolutely unique in the Alps!
