Absolut Park: Spring Battle 2021

In 2002 the first Spring Battle took place in Absolut Park. Over the past years, we always had creative formats and awards, constantly changing and updated. An evolving event format, always up to date and in tune with the zeitgeist. This year in its 19th edition and due to the current Covid-19 situation, we adapted to the restrictions and will hold the Spring Battle 2021 as BEST TRICK INSTAGRAM ONLINE CONTEST.


The main changes from the past year’s format: The focus will be on four BEST TRICK AWARDS instead of the full slopestyle runs of the past. Also the event will be digitally global, meaning the invited riders and their filmers do not necessarily have to be present on site, but can film their entries to the four categories anywhere in the world during the event’s time window from February 27th till March 4th 2021. 


Only invited riders can participate globally, whereas our event on site at Absolut Park  will be open for any rider wanting to participate. As usual, Spring Battle 2021 will be welcoming the best women and men in snowboarding and freeskiing on the globe.
