Join Gernot, an Austrian IFMGA mountain guide, for one or several days of powder freeride and off piste skiing in the Gasteiner Valley close to Salzburg.
The Gasteiner Valley is located in the Salzburger Land in Austria. It is a little paradise for freerider / off piste skier and snowboarder.
The area is composed of 4 ski resorts : Schlossalm-Angertal-Stubnerkogel, Sportgastein, Graukogel and Dorfgastein-Großarl. Based on your ski level, your wishes and the weather / snow conditions, we can go and explore together the backcountry terrains where the powder is the best for some awesome Freeride skiing runs.
Join me for one or several days and let’s escape the stressful everyday life by exploring the natural beauty and silence away from the crowded slopes of Austria!
After a short basic risk training, our focus will be put on fun and safety!
I will let you discover the best pristine spots for you to enjoy great skiing and come back home with a large smile on your face.
The average steepness goes around 30 to 40° and the altitude difference of the vertical runs goes from 800 to 1800 meters.
The best period to come skiing in the Gasteiner Valley is from December till April.
I will take maximum 6 persons with me in order to ensure the safety of the group. If you are more than 6, I will ask a friend of mine, IFMGA mountain guide as well, to join us.
I know all these places very well and it will be my pleasure to bring you there. If you plan to come in the Valley during your next winter holidays, please get in touch with me and let’s plan together one or several days of Freeride skiing in the area.
If you want to stay several days I can organize the accommodation for you.
- Shovel , probe , locator beacon = €20,- / day - ABS - Backpack = €15,- / day
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 traveller did not leave a comment.
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.
