About the Guide


I’m from Austria (Europe) and live in the Gastein-Valley next to Salzburg. Since 1996 I’m a UIAGM / IVBV professional mountain guide. In 2000 I graduated as a ski instructor.
My last 20 years I was working as mountain guide in all different parts of the Alps, in all seasons. In winter I work for different ski schools as ski instructor in Austria and Switzerland. Since a couple of years i am guiding as well in New Zealand. Furthermore I`m working in several education teams like the Austrian Mountain Guide Association as a coach, and also in the Austrian Skiing Instructor Association, specialized for alpine courses.
I was member of two Himalaya expeditions in 1997 and 2004. I have been climbing on Cho Oyu and Broad Peak .
My big passion is rock and ice climbing.

What People are Saying about Gernot Lachmaier


The trip was rushed, and unfortunately the guide was impatient and at times I felt that he didn’t want to be there - which made the trip unenjoyable. The positives were, No doubt he is vey experienced, I have learnt a lot from him and was thankful for things he have shown me.

I had a great time. The warm weather made challenging to find ice, but Gernot found us a fun and exciting pillar. He gave me lots of good tips to help me improve my technique. I would definitely recommend the Bad Gastein area for ice climbing.
