Description

The Atlas mountains are one of the most exotic areas to go ski touring. To go on a skiing holiday to a country more famous for its deserts and beaches is an original experience that will certainly leave an impression.

Toubkal, with an elevation of 4167 m is the highest mountain in Northern Africa. It is surrounded by high mountains that together form a massive mountain range about 80 km south of Marrakech. The mountains position, altitude and valley surroundings means that it snows here throughout the winter.

This ski trip will take us each day to a new valley with magnificent landscape. We will live in mountain huts and gîtes (simple hotels) and we will be accompanied by a local group: a guide, a cook, carriers and donkeys that will carry our equipment when we go down the valley.

Day 1: Flight to Marrakech, night at hotel.
Dag 2: Bus to Imlil, ski trip up to refuge Mouflon at 3200 m, which takes 5 hours and is 1400 meter climb. For this stage the donkeys will carry our equipment.
Day 3: We go to Clocheton corridor at 3963 m and ski back to refuge Mouflon.
Day 4: Toubkal, 4167 m and ski down the Imhouzer valley, 1700 m downhill north facing, magnificent! The night is spent in Chamaharouch (2350 m).
Day 5: Tizi’n Tarharate (3555 m) and we descend via the ravine. The night is spent at Azib Likemt (2600 m).
Day 6: Tizi Likemt (3555 m) with the night spent at Tacheddirt gîte (2300 m).
Day 7: Iguenouan (3882 m) descending to Imlil (1740).
Day 8: return trip to Marrakech in the morning, a night at hotel for return the next day.
