We can't belive that in Morocco, in north of Africa, we can do ski, yes you can do it in a wonderful situation. You can try it and you will want to do it again. Enjoy the winter months in the High Atlas. Morocco's mountains are a paradise for snow climbers and ski fans.
During this trip we are likely to encounter a variety of snow conditions from very soft to hard and icy. Generally at this time of the year the snow is in excellent condition for skiing.
Typically we will ski for 6 - 8 hours each day. It will be necessary at some points to carry skis and to ascend using crampons.
The downhill slopes will be maximum 35 degrees. This holiday is suitable for experienced off-piste skiers. Participants should have very good control of turns and stops, particularly on hard slopes. In addition the relatively high altitudes encountered will mean that a good level of physical fitness is also required.
