The news in brief
Opening of "Panorama Link": In December 2020, the "Panorama Link" opened, a direct connection between the three valleys of Snow Space Salzburg and the three valleys of the Shuttleberg Flachauwinkl – Kleinarl and the ski resort Zauchensee. In just nine minutes, the fast, comfortable ten-seater gondola takes winter sports enthusiasts from Wagrain – Flachau to the summit of the Shuttleberg, from where they can choose all the descents to Kleinarl and Flachauwinkl or continue directly to Zauchensee.
New red slope “Lumberjack”: At Shuttleberg the connecting pistes and piste linkages will be updated and extended to handle the emerging stream of people because of the Panorama Link. A new entry to Fürstwandpiste towards Kleinarl will be established and there will be a new red piste alongside Lumberjack Shuttle.
Bio-Bergrestaurant Lumberjack: At the bottom station of the Lumberjack Shuttle, there is a new mountain restaurant. The restaurant is organized as a food hall and offers a wide range of organic meals and drinks for flexitarians, vegetarians and vegans. Different food stations and food trucks invite you to taste and enjoy the meals. An airy, light-flooded architecture with lots of wood and glass awaits you. It combines the charm and comfort of a snug hut with the open, well-spaced design of a modern loft and is laid out on threes spacious levels.
But it's not just the pistes that are varied, the team is also colourful: The Shuttleberg is proud to employ people from many different nations and to offer them high-quality and secure jobs. The different languages and cultures benefit both the company and its guests.
The largest snow park in Austria
The Absolut Park on the Shuttleberg is one of the largest snow parks in the world. Freeskiers and snowboarders can enjoy a huge area with around 100 perfectly shaped kickers, boxes and rails. The park has its own areas for beginners, advanced riders and pros, so that kids and teenagers can slowly and safely approach the freestyle sport.
National and international snowboard and freeski contests confirm the high quality of the Absolut Park, as does the Absolut Park Team, which consists of international top athletes, Austrian champions and local newcomers, and regularly rides in the Absolut Park.
The Chill House at the bottom of the Absolut Park is a popular meeting place for snowboarders and freeskiers – for relaxing, bouldering or skating in the Mini Ramp.
