Description

Join me for an exotic 8-day ski touring adventure in the High Atlas mountains in Morocco, Northern Africa. We will enjoy fantastic descents on the slopes of incredible peaks, like Toubkal (4167)m, the highest mountain in this range.

The High Atlas separates the Sahara Desert from the Mediterranean Sea and continental zones to the north and west.  This massive range formed by high mountains lies about 80 km south of Marrakesh. It snows regularly in the higher peaks, so it has become a great destination for winter sports.

During this ski trip, I will take you to a new valley each day. We will enjoy spectacular landscapes and great ski tours. Also, along the way we will discover the unique and exotic culture of Morocco and its people.

As for accommodation, we will stay in a hotel in Marrakesh and in gîtes (simple hotels) and mountain huts during the ski tour. Very simple, but with great hospitality! It will be a great opportunity to spend time with the mountain people and getting to know the local culture.

Also, a local group will accompany us: a guide and a cook, and also carriers and donkeyw to carry our equipment.

We will meet at Marrakesh Airport and spend the night at a hotel. Next day, we will take a bus to the village of Imlil (1800 m). Then, we will ski up to Mouflon Refuge (3200 m). It will be a 1400 meter climb. But don’t worry, the donkeys will carry our equipment.

On the third day, from Clocheton corridor (3963 m) we will ski back to the mountain hut.

The fourth day will be amazing! We will go up Toubkal (4167 m) and ski down the Imhouzer Valley. It will be a magnificent 1700 meter descent. We will sleep at Tacheddirt gîte.

On day 5, we ski up to Tizi’n Tarharate (3555 m) and we ski down via the ravine. We spend the night at Azib Likemt (2600 m). Next day, we ski yp to Tizi Likemt (3555 m) and spend the night at Tacheddirt gîte (2300 m).

Finally, on our last ski touring day, we will ski up to Inguenouan (3882 m) and descend back to Imlil (1740 m). On Day 8, we travel back to Marrakesh.

Please note you need to be in very good shape in order to join this tour. As for the weather, at times it can be very cold, as we will be travelling through high mountains. In the valleys, thanks to the sun, weather can be milder.

So get in touch with me if you want to join me on this exciting adventure in Morocco! Book your trip and we’ll start planning for an unforgettable ski tour. I also offer other great ski touring trips in different countries, like Japan, Sweden, France, Norway or Italy. You can check them here!
