Description

The Gastein valley is a marvellous area in the Salzburg region of Austria. it is perfect for many winter activities, the most popular of which is skiing, particularly free ride skiing. On this trip that I am offering, I want to guide you for a day of free ride, or off-piste skiing, at Dorfgastein and Grossarl.

Each place offers their own personalities and highlights. However, one thing that both of them share are great free ride skiing runs. The combined skiing area of Dorfgastein and Grossarl is 73 kilometres. There are also 17 different ski lifts to take you wherever you need to go. Finally, Grossarl is also part of Ski Amade, which is Austria's largest connected skiing area. The Amade area covers over 700 kilometres and has 270 ski lifts.

It is needless to say that skiing in Austria is immensely popular. And after taking one look at the slopes of where we will go, you will immediately see why.

The scenery is also a wonderful highlight of both Dorfgastein and Grossarl. There are many lovely peaks to admire, and the snow covered forests bring a soothing calm to the landscape. However, when skiing in Austria, it is hard to take the attention away from the slopes themselves. The powder you will get to enjoy is deep and plentiful, and I have no doubt after completing one run, you'll be anxious for another!

There are many places you can choose to ski in Austria. And I do lead trips in several of them. However, Dorfgastein and Grossarl are definitely highlights that are worth enjoying. So if you want to give these 2 places a try, just send me a request. I know you won't regret it.

I can also take you on another free ride skiing trip in Graukogel, which is also in the Gastein valley.

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.

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.
