Andreas Gassner, “Andi”
What should it be, snow, ice or rock – Andi is everywhere at home in the Zell am See Kaprun region in Salzburger Land
”The ski peaks must always point to the valley!”
I grew up in Zell am See in the shadow of the Hohe Tauern and kept a distance from Grossglockner and Co in my young years. It wasn’t until I finally got rid of my sumptuous baby bacon when I was 13 that I discovered skiing and started doing it with passion. Now i almost ”fixed” I quickly got into the pull of the mountains and started climbing and climbing in rock and ice.
The mountains took up an ever-increasing part of my life. I became youth director of the Alpine Club section Zell am See, mountain rescue man and completed my training as a ski and snowboard instructor. During my studies I devoted myself to meteoroloy, because you can use the weather science very well when mountaineering. Where did I do that? Of course in the Tyrolean capital Innsbruck. My travels took me to the Eastern Alps around Piz Bernina and Biancograt. Soon I couldn’t get past Chamonix and Mont Blanc – after all, I also traveled to the high mountains of Bolivia and Chile.
As a mountain guide, I have really found my calling and am happy every time I look in the faces of my guests at the summit or after a hammer deep snow day and the grin from my left to the right ear no longer seems to go away. Then I am happy and exactly where I always wanted to go.
If you would like to have such a described grin on your face, then I am happy if you go on tour with me and to answer your request.
See you soon, your Andi
