All Levels


The Gastein Valley is one of the best regions in Austria for winter adventures. On this tour you can explore this amazing area for one or several days and enjoy a splitboarding challenge under expert guidance. Come join me!

Encompassing four ski areas and three communities, the Gastein Valley  is a snow paradise. It is located in the Hohe Tauern mountains, a sub-range of the Central Eastern Alps.

On this splitboarding outing we will get away from the busy Austrian pistes and enjoy the wild and pristine nature of this beautiful country. From forested sections to wide open powder slopes, Gastein Valley is all about variety!

For this trip you will need some prior off-piste experience. However, I will adapt the itinerary depending on your skills and wishes, as well as weather and snow conditions. Additionally, you  will also need a good fitness level as we might hike several hours in order to reach the valley’s best spots.

So, if you want to discover the intriguing variety and countless splitboarding opportunities of the Gastein Valley, please contact me! I will be happy to be your guide!

Or, if you are looking for a different kind of winter adventure in this same area, you can check out my Ice climbing tour.

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.
