Backcountry skiing in the best spots of the Gastein Valley close to Salzburg, enjoying pristine nature and powder snow, together with Gernot, Austrian IFMGA mountain guide.
The Gastein Valley is one of the best area in Austria for ski touring and backcountry skiing enthusiasts. Why not going together away from the busy Austrian pistes and enjoy the wild and pristine nature through one or several days of ski touring?! There is nothing better than winter landscapes and the unspoilt nature you find in this part of the Alps, close to Salzburg!
Great backcountry skiing spots include Kalkbretterkopf, Ankogel, the Gadaunerer Hochalm, the Kreuzkogel… I particularly like the ski tour to the Kalkbretterkopf. You can enjoy there awesome views of the mountain peaks of the Gastein valley, the Goldberg and Ankogel range.
I can take both beginners and more experienced skiers. I will adapt the itinerary and the program based on your level, your wishes and the weather & snow conditions.
Our adventure will start with a briefing on the safety rules and the behaviour to have when leaving on ski touring trips.
If it’s your first time backcountry skiing, it’s better to have some off-piste skiing experience before and be able to ski in different snow layers.
We might use the skins for 3 to 6 hours every day in order to reach the great spots of the valley.
The best period for ski touring in the Gastein Valley goes from January till April.
Feel free to get in touch with me if you plan to come in the area during your next winter holidays. We can discuss about a program and an itinerary that meet your wishes. It will be my great pleasure to guide you here and let you discover the secret ski places of my region.
If you come for several days, I can help you with the accommodation.

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.
