Wikipedia:
Bilgeri was until the end of the Danube Monarchy, 1918, alpine and ski instructor in the Österr.-ungar. Army and then worked as a ski instructor in Austria, Sweden, Switzerland and Turkey. In 1892 he organized the first ski lessons in Gargellen.

He combined the Lower Austrian and the "Norwegian" skating technique, which stood in opposition to about 1900 (see also Mathias Zdarsky, Kristianiatechnik and Telemarken). Bilgeri contributed to the improvement of alpine and ski equipment and helped the Stembogen and the "two-stick technology" for breakthrough. At first he used a disassemblable stick, so he had two for the ascent and one for the descent.

According to Bilgeri, a command building was named by the Austrian army in Bregenz (command building Colonel Bilgeri ). In 1959, the Georg-Bilgeri-Strasse was named after him in Vienna Donaustadt (22nd district).The Bilgeri Glacier in Grahamland was named after him.
