In recent years Morocco has joined the ranks of the world’s
off-beat skiing destinations. Yet it’s no also-ran: Morocco’s main resort Oukaimeden (one hour’s drive from Marrakech) lies 3,273 metres above sea level: high enough to ensure snow from January to the end of March. With good infrastructure and some excellent runs you have to pinch yourself to realise you’re in sub-tropical Africa. Ifrane, in the Middle Atlas, is 1,650 metres above sea level and has a variety of ski runs, as well as Alpine chalets and cedar forests.
