An atypical destination, which over the years remains so beautiful! It is always so impressive to ski facing the desert, to be skiing in the morning and on the terrace in T-shirt afterwards.
This year, Morocco will also be the opportunity to ski corridors, in addition to the summit of Toubkal (4167m). There is indeed a beautiful north face located in a valley near the village of Imlil, which will bring you all the sensations of moderately steep slopes ski! With the advantages of this destination: no or very few other skiers in the same area, a snow often well stabilized by the variations of temperature, and a porterage in donkey (the top!) which makes it possible to go up to reach the snow in sport shoes when it is a little further than the place of accommodation!
This trip will also be an opportunity to (re) discover the Moroccan charm, the endless mint tea, pastries, souks, oranges, etc ...
