Day snow skiing near Marrakech

Excursions from Marrakech, Marrakech

A day up to Oukaimeden is a truly wonderful experience.  Only an hours drive (and a stunningly beautiful one) lies the village where in winter months, snow permitting, one can hire skies and be on the slopes within minutes of arriving.  This is not a place where you would book a 10 day ski holiday as the snow is not as reliable in this changing climate but for some of the winter months a great days skiing can be had.

There are a few ski hire shops and a lift pass to the two chair lifts and numerous drag lifts can be bought for a couple of pounds!

Chez Juju offers a lovely warm lunch of traditional Moroccan and some more Alpine dishes.  Great atmosphere and totally worth the drive.  Just check by calling Chez Juju before leaving Marrakech that the slopes are skiable that day.
