 Austria Horizont Reisen Everest 2001 Expedition

Dr. Stefan Gatt

Study of sports and sports management, some experience in industrial management, and psychology. Before his study some education in sports and training: mountain and skiing guide, sport climbing teacher. My background is in the study of sports and sports management. I have some experience in industrial management and psychology. Prior to this I gained experience as a mountain and skiing guide and as a sport climbing instructor. The emphasis of my work is in the field of team and personal development of people working in leading positions in economy. The emphasis of my work is in the field of personal and team development which I have taken to the business world, assisting many large corporations in the achievement of personal development. I can use the experience from this work perfect for my work as expedition guide. Until now I have guided 14 very successful expeditions to South Africa and Tibet. I climbed the following summits: Aconcagua, Huascaran, Alpamayo, Quitaraju, Toclaraju, Illimani, Ancohuma, Huyna Potosi and Sajama.

In Patagonia I had some first ascents of Fitz Roy. Under my management we had a successful rescue of a person from 7500 meters on Cho Oyu in 1996. After our rescue we reached the summit of this 8201 meter peak. In 1999 I skied off of Cho Oyo with my Snowboard. On this expedition 70% of the participants reached the summit without any help from Sherpas or oxygen. This was my greatest success as expedition guide of a 8000 meter summit. Languages: English, Spanish and French 

The success of my expeditions are:

·        Safety has priority

·        Easy acclimatization with cultural highlights

·        Everybody is responsible for himself at the mountain

·        Teaching of alpine medical and sport-scientific knowledge to achieve a self aware treatment of the body

·         Teamwork and fun in the group

EverestNews.com will present the Austria Horizont Reisen Everest Expedition.  This will be a first for EverestNews.com in that the expedition will report dispatches in German and English on the site.
