5 Amazing Freestyle Ski Parks In Europe
24 February 2020

Mainland Europe is home to some great freestyle ski parks that have boatloads of rails, boxes, kicker lines and other features to ride; and with most of the parks only a few hours away (on a flight) they’re definitely worth a visit.

Here’s five of our favourites:  

Livigno Park, Mottolino, Italy

  • XL features
  • Giant airbag jump
  • Natural pipe
  • Over 60 features

This award-winning park sits within Mottolino resort in the north of Italy near the Swiss border. The park is known for its giant airbag and XL features which attract various international freestyle ski teams including GB Park and Pipe.

There are plenty of smaller kickers and features which cater for beginners and those looking to progress with a fast four-seater chair servicing the park.


Park Avenue, Les Deux Alpes, France

  • 365 day park
  • Superpipe
  • Lots of unique jib features
  • Kicker line

The beauty of this park is that you can ride it 365 days a year. Over winter the team of shapers extend the park down the slope from 2600m as well as increasing the size of the kickers and features.

When summer comes around the glacier provides a solid base for a kicker line and more technical jibs.


Flachauwinkl Absolute park, Austria

  • 1.5km park, split into 7 sections
  • 100 plus obstacles
  • Creative lines
  • Something for all levels of skiers

Austria’s largest park provides you with a wide selection of kickers, rails and jibs each split into different sections with something for all levels of skier. You’ll find that the park is kept in great condition with a dedicated shaping team perfecting features throughout the day.

Recently they have added the Chill House building at the bottom of the job zone where you can take a break from the park, kick back and watch freeski vids.


Snowpark Vierli, Rauland, Norway

  • Long season
  • Xl features
  • Fun jib line
  • Night park

A small yet perfectly formed ski park, it’s managed by and developed in collaboration athletes to make sure it meets the high standards of today’s skiers. It’s also lined with floodlights for extended laps of the park and thanks to the northern location the season extends well beyond Easter.


Snowpark El Tarter, Grandvalira, Andorra

  • 1.3 km park
  • 7 separate zones
  • Excellent freestyle camps
  • Something for all levels of skiers

At the biggest park in Andorra, you’ll find a large collection of obstacles and kickers to help you progress and have fun whatever your level of expertise. The park has grown over the years and now takes up an entire mountain face at the resort.

It also has the added bonus of a few natural side hits when you travel between the different freestyle zones.
