The Ski Resort

Shuttleberg Kleinarl Flachauwinkl offers visitors 26.5 kilometres of runs to explore. In terms of difficulty, 18.5 kilometres are rated easy, 4.5 intermediate and 3.5 kilometres hard. Fancy testing yourself against the clock and recording your top speed? Then head over to the permanent speed course and timed run. Overall, nine lifts carry skiers and snowboarders up the mountain here.
Children and beginners will enjoy the Family Run, a mellow groomer and one of the simplest trails on the mountain. Youngsters can discover the Crazy Shuttleberg Dolls at various points along the slope and collect stickers as they go. And if their energy should run low, then little ones can head for the Sun House. Located at the middle station of the lift in Flachauwinkl, kids enjoy plenty of room to play and chill here as well as an in-house children’s cinema and drawing corner.
The Absolut ski school offers special freestyle courses for skiers and snowboarders in addition to the usual ski school courses for beginners, children and adults.
The ski area has, however, primarily made its name as a paradise for freestyle skiers and snowboarders. One undoubted reason is the Super Pipe, measuring some 160 metres in length, 30 metres wide and up to 6 metres high. The Absolut Park is also a must for freestyle skiers. It is one of the largest and most popular terrain parks in Europe, and over 100 obstacles are perfectly prepared everyday by the professional shaping crew here. The Absolut Park has no less than six sections, each appealing to different skill levels, from novices to pros. Burton’s The Stash Park was built true to the motto “Back to the roots” using natural elements from the landscape and almost 40 wooden features. The Chill House has video walls, an indoor skate ramp, bouldering wall and comfortable sofas for freestyle skiers and boarders to unwind between sessions.
Freeride skiers will find some great, safe and sign-posted routes off-piste on the Shuttleberg for experiencing some incredible powder.
Shuttleberg Flachauwinkl-Kleinarl is part of Ski amadé, Austria’s largest ski association. The Ski amadé pass allows visitors to explore five top ski regions with a total of around 760 kilometres of runs in Salzburger Land and neighbouring Styria.

Winklalm is an inviting place with a generous sun deck at the middle station of the Sunshine Shuttle, also serving regional fare. In the Almstüberl, at the mountain station of the Bubble and Powder Shuttle, you can look forward to a cosy, down-to-earth atmosphere. Schüttelalm serves typical mountain food as well as delicious fish and steaks. Hungry skiers could also head for Berggasthof Pröll for mixed lunch platters and dishes just like grandma used to cook! Liftgasthaus Galler, Zirbenhof and Schirmstüberl are also good places to take a cosy break.
