The highlights : This is an unusual way to discover the Moroccan mountains at a time of year when they are not overcrowded.

                            It is easy to interact with the locals as we will be travelling with a Berber guide, cooking team and muleteers.

                            Our Moroccan friends provide us with a warm welcome and good organizational skills.

Air Travel : Airline ROYAL AIR MAROC

Ski touring in Morocco is and Ascension of Toubkal 4164m, a wonderful winter foray into the Moroccan High Atlas

i

Visible on the horizon from a palm-tree covered Marrakech, the vast wall that is the High Atlas Mountains is cut off by snow from mid-November onwards. This trip takes place within a hidden Berber world and involves close contact with the local villagers.

i

The long valleys which are skiable in winter here have a reputation for being unmissable. They are steep and enclosed and snow which has blown off the summits remains there for a long time. Travelling over the high passes, we reach deep valleys and villages built above the terraced fields and walnut trees. Mules carry our equipment during this trek providing us with a welcome, if somewhat unusual, form of assistance.

i

Our base, the Kasbah du Toubkal, in the village of Imlil is somewhere that you will not easily forget. The nights we spend in rustic mountain huts are largely compensated for by the comfort experienced in this impressive riad.
