Action-packed special slopes, easy, wide family slopes, natural ski routes and snow parks for beginners and advanced riders: on the Shuttleberg, winter sports enthusiasts can not only ski excellently groomed slopes, but also discover something new in a playful way.

On a total of 40 kilometres there are many highlights for families, e.g: 19 kilometres long Family Run with 19 colourful Crazy Dolls stations, an exciting scavenger hunt on the whole mountain, weekly events to participate in, family-friendly places to take a rest, discounts for families.

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. National and international snowboard and freeski contests confirm the high quality of 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.

On the Shuttleberg you will only find modern, comfortable chairlifts. Each lift has at least two well-groomed runs, in addition, there are several natural freeride routes.

The Shuttleberg has its own motorway exit in Flachauwinkl (A10, Tauernautobahn) and in Kleinarl the valley station is located directly at the entrance to the village. Besides, free ski buses run at short intervals to Flachauwinkl and Kleinarl.

New connection to Wagrain

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 to the summit of the Shuttleberg, from where they can choose all the descents to Kleinarl and Flachauwinkl or continue directly to Zauchensee.

The Shuttleberg Flachauwinkl - Kleinarl is also located in the centre of Ski amadé, Austria's largest ski association. Multi-day ski passes are valid for five top ski regions and 760 kilometres of groomed slopes in the province of Salzburg and in neighbouring Styria — an additional plus for skiers and snowboarders who like to go for miles.
