toubkal-ascent Sunny Toubkal in winter toubkal1 Toubkal Summit

Morocco is a great skiing destination for winter time and spring from January to early April.

Off-piste skiing is popular in the High Atlas, particularly in the Toubkal massif, where the Toubkal Refuge is often full of groups.

Most off-piste activity is ski mountaineering, but skinny skis (langlauf) are good in the Middle Atlas if there is snow, in which case the Azilal–Bou Goumez–Ighil Mgoun area is possible.

Snowboarding is also gaining in popularity at Moroccan resorts. For further information on skiing and mountaineering, contact Bureau Des Guides Imlil ( Tel : 0524485626 , bureau.guides@yahoo.fr).
