Snow has been covering the ground of several resorts by now but parks that are shredable in early December are hard to come by. An exception is the Shuttleberg at Flachauwinkl/ Kleinarl: The local "sheriffs"- that's what the shapers call themselves- do their best for your early season shredding. That's why next weekend the whole Absolut Park and a big part of Burton's "the Stash" will be rippable.

This weekend's motto is „Fort Shredderland Park Opening“ and you can test out some boards by Burton and Atomic, specials at the Chillhouse and the Asolut Park, cheap package dealsand of course some nighttime action. This weekend got it all from Absolut team riders showing off their skills at 2 pm, while a DJ will spin the wheel of steel at the Chill House with it's minirap, to Quiksilver rock night and live hip-hop DJs. Sunday got a special treat beside the mentioned activities, Travis Rice's That's It That's All will be shown in Salzburg. You can get a deal for two nights and two days lift ticket for just € 9, just check their website or dial 0043/ (0)6457/ 2214-22 CODEWORD: "Fort Shredderland"
