All Levels


Sportgastein, in Austria, is a very popular area among winter sports lovers. This tour is your chance to come with an expert guide and enjoy one of several days of splitboarding here. Join me!

Located in the Gastein valley, Sportgastein offers an amazing powder snow terrain as far as the eye can see. Using the available ski lifts and making short hikes, we can reach an ample area for stunning off-piste runs.

From forested sections to wide open powder slopes, Gastein Valley is all about variety! There is nothing better than the winter landscapes and the untracked terrain that we will find in this part of the Alps, close to Salzburg.

We will find slopes open to all levels of splitboarding ability. So no matter if you are a beginner or an expert, you will have a great time here. Furthermore, I will assist you by providing helpful safety tips!

So, if you are up for this splitboarding adventure in the gorgeous scenery of the Alps, please contact me. I have no doubt that you will have an amazing time in Sportgastein!

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.
