People per Guide
Type of Trip
I am happy to invite you to this 6-day ski traverse in Mount Toubkal, the highest peak in Morocco and in all North Africa!
The Atlas mountains, where Mount Toubkal lies, offer one of the most exotic landscapes to go ski touring. It is surrounded by high mountains that together form a massive 80-km-long mountain range.
During this skiing traverse we will ski in a new valley each day. We will spend the night in really comfortable mountain huts, where you will learn a lot about the kindness of the local people.
This 6-day program has its meeting point in the city of Marrakech. Then, we’ll move to Imlil to start our ski tour up to the first hut. Once we gain enough altitude, at 4100 meters of height, the real adventure begins.
In addition to Mount Toubkal, we can also ascend to other surrounding mountains. For example, the Akioud at 3900m, the Ras n’Ouanoukrim at 4015 m or the Imeghras at 3900 meters. It will be really exciting!
I can lead a maximum of 8 people per group. The minimum per group is 4 people but you can also ask me for a budget if you are 3 or less. Remember that all participants must have prior ski touring experience as well as some basic technical skills.
So, let’s go skiing together next winter! Contact me now for further details or if you want to book your place. I will be here, waiting for your message.

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.
What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.

About the Guide
Xavi (Terrassa, Catalonia, 1963). Actually I’m living in Prullans.
During several years I have been practicing my two big passions, mountaineering and photography as hobbies. Actually I’m a High Mountain Guide and photographer in outdoor BTT races, mountaineering marathons or climbing competitions.
In 1982 I did became a member of Servei General d'Informació de Muntanya, a specialized mountain library. And from 1998 I’m working as High Mountain Guide for NKBV (Alpine dutch team).
After working 6 winters as a lifeguard patrol in a Catalan ski resort, I spent a few seasons of the southern summer working as a High Mountain Guide for Azimut 360 and Chilemontaña, two agencies located in Chile, leading clients through the Patagonia and into America's highest peak, the Aconcagua.
Since 2005 I lead my own clients around the world as a freelancer Mountain Guide. From September 2007 I manage the Companhia de Guies de Montanha web, bound to Carros de Foc. I have take part in many expeditions to Andes in South America and Himalaya, Karakorum and Hindu Kush in Asia.
I’ll like to show you “my” mountains, “my” Pyrenees and of course, other mountains around the world. I’ll like to guide you till de top of Aconcagua, Ararat, skiing down from Elbrus, or Kola’s peninsula in Russia.
