Ski touring in the High-Atlas
We offer counsel and help for you to create the perfect tour à la carte
Are you a mountain guide or a hiker who would like to visit the Moroccan sun, without worrying about logistics? Zafrani can help you organize your trip, from arrival to departure.
The High-Atlas has adequate snow in winter (February/March) for a wonderful ski experience. The Toubkal massive (4167m) is particularly accessible, while the summit of Mgoun (4068m) requires a bit more experience. Huts and holiday cottages make it possible to spend several days at the foot of beautiful couloirs and combs which beg to be skied. It is a strange but agreeable sensation to find oneself in the Djemma el Fna Place in Marrakech with skis in hand....and over breakfast in the morning from the terraces of the Medina riads, it is possible to see the snow covered Atlas in the distance! Mules and porters will make the long portage to the mountains less onerous, and make it possible to fully take advantage of the ski slopes in these two regions of the High-Atlas.
Every year we organize several ski touring trips for Swiss and French mountain guides.
