It is about 2-3 hours away from Marrakech that is well worth a visit and is frequented by tourists in the winter when the snow is covered and covered with white. There is a cable car and only works in winter

Amazing ski resort in Africa. We went in late September for the wildlife and the amazing scenery. Worth a trip. Best to get a local driver as the roafs are not for the faint hearted. But the views across the High Atlas are outstanding.

Just returned from Morocco. This summit was our first of 6 over 9 days. Obviously no skiing in June! Stayed at the Club Alpin Francais Lodge in the village of Oukaimeden. Nice food prepared by our own cook using the facilities here. Spacious rooms. Excellent showers. Good experience.

With the car we rented in Fes from the people in Riad Nessim we went all the way here. Wow. It is really high and you must be a good driver to not end up in the ravine but Thanks God, it was worth it. There are numberless voyage options from marrakesh here to the mountains. It is an amazing place and people are brilliant too, relief after the hustles of marrakesh. Enjoy tagine and tea from the local offers, enjoy the air and the views and try to leave as wątły as possible to enjoy the mountains as much as you can.

There is a two way walking path from here to the tallest mountain in North America called Toubkal. There is a 7 hour walk to a little mountain refuge for the climbers to sleep there and then another 4 hours walk to the peak. If you can, if you are able - try.

I must be back someday to Marocco just to complete this and reach Toubkal, with God's willing.

This area is truly beautiful and we were thankful to catch it while it still had snow. However as we were sight seeing and just wanted to get closer to the ski-slope, we were hassled quite a bit and shoved tickets for parking (15MAD) even though we tried to tell them we're not interested in parking, just driving through.

Note this is only when you get close to the ski slope. Also there's quite a bit of poverty in the area, and tourists. So quite a few people ask for money and particularly children...which is a little sad.

Also when we stopped by the side of the road to take pictures, police ushered us away. Unsure why. But otherwise, driving through this area is beaut! You may even drive through a few clouds!
