Two snow parks - a European freestyle Mecca

THE ABSOLUT PARK EUROPE’S LONGEST SNOW PARK

Over the last few years the Absolut Park has developed into one of the biggest and best known parks in Europe. The more than 100 obstacles are attended to daily by a professional shape crew to ensure perfect conditions for the riders.

The entire park area stretches over a length of over 1.5 km, which is divided into 6 sections and is equipped with an extremely wide and varied range of obstacles. No matter which level, from beginner to pro: The Absolut Park offers everything that the freestyle heart could desire.

With the amazing Superpipe and a 5-kicker line that can truly hold its own in an international comparison, the Absolut Park sets new standards and offers an internationally top level set up. 

The Superpipe since last year is even serviced by its own lift. With a height of 7 metres, it conforms exactly to the dimensions required for X-Games and Olympic Games., but a number of top professionals and European national teams have found this to be the perfect spot with ideal conditions, which is why many of them trained here last year. The Superpipe is kept in perfect shape throughout the season by no less than John Melville, the eminent shaping expert from New Zealand and head shaper of the biggest snowboard contests around the world. Check out www.absolutpark.com for more information.

BURTON THE STASH

The Stash is a unique park concept, which is concentrated down to the basics and reduced to the most natural: Namely nature itself featuring elements consisting of snow and wood. This minimalist yet innovative concept was personally initiated by Jake Burton and the snowboard legend Craig Kelly. In accordance with the motto “the woods are the goods”, this is not about flawlessly prepared slopes and obstacles shaped to perfect detail.This is about encouraging the creativity of the riders.

The obstacles in the Stash Park are integrated into the natural environment and can almost always be ridden in numerous ways. The natural terrain additionally offers an incredible number of jib possibilities. The Stash Park has lots of extraordinary obstacles. An enormous backcountry area with countless natural powder jumps, cliffs, windlips combined with the most diverse range of wooden obstacles. This is the ideal place for any shredder who wants to experience the ultimate backcountry and freeride feeling in the safest possible way.

“Lil Stash” provides kids and beginners the ideal terrain to practice in and features wider and easier boxes and rails. This park concept gains an ever-increasing level of popularity.

The numerous hand-carved figures and obstacles in the Stash Park were created by the US American chain saw artist Bob King, who also took over the task of creating the artwork for the four other Stash Parks around the world. The painting in the Stash Cabin was created by the New York artist Scott Lenhardt. Scott has worked for Burton Snowboards for many years and was responsible for a large number of board designs. Check out Burton the Stash here.

IDEAL COLLABORATION

Along with Stash Shuttleberg Flachauwinkl-Kleinarl collaborate with the successful snowboard company Burton. In the Burton team movie “the big B” from 2009, Shuttleberg was used as one of the two main film locations.
