As of Saturday March 16, the Spring Battle presented by Flachau is officially underway at Absolut Park! Until 20 March, a mix of top stars and local talent, both freeskiers and snowboarders will be throwing down in Absolut Park, looking to land their best possible run on video while enjoying a week of prime shredding in one of the Alps’ best snowparks.

The Spring Battle has rightly earned its position as one of the most respected freestyle events in the Alps. To begin with, Spring Battle isn’t your “standard” slopestyle contest, but rather a week-long video contest, during which competitors have several days get their best single run down on video. This gives riders a better chance at putting down their best possible line, while giving everyone involved a week full of action-packed fast laps on Absolut Park’s awesome spring terrain.

Two contest days are already in the bag, with sunny weather on Sunday giving competitors an early chance to get their runs down in good conditions. Skiers in the mix this year include Oscar Wester, Daniel Hanka, Sarah Hoefflin, Margaux Hackett, and Johanne Killi as well as Absolut Park team riders Sam Baumgartner and Dennis Ranalter.

Spring's in the air, but some fresh snowfall kept things feeling wintry over the weekend.

Okay, maybe not completely wintry.

It's hard to take good pictures of double corks like this one from Oscar. We'll be waiting for the video.
