Ski Tour Toubkal Morocco7 DAYS, 6 NIGHTS
Did you ever imagine it? Cross-country skiing in Africa? Yes it is possible in the Moroccan High Atlas, between the months of January and April it has plenty of snow to enjoy long descents with our boards. I propose to climb the Toubkal, the highest mountain in the Atlas and to stay in a refuge at 3000m from where we will ascend other 4000s of the area. Porters of the town will help us to upload our material to the refuge, it will be a trip with a great cultural contrast, a trip in time that will not leave you indifferent.
Trip to Marrakech, we will all meet at the airport and the adventure begins. Once in Morocco a taxi will take us to Imhlil. Here we will have dinner and rest before starting the crossing.
Take contact with the African snow, we will prepare the backpacks and the material that the porters will take us and we will begin the ascent to the shelter of the Toubkal 3200m. According to the season we will start walking with or without skis until we enter the valley where the snow will begin.
Early we had breakfast in the refuge and with the first lights we went towards the summits of Ras and Timezguida, both of more than 4000m. We will descend if conditions allow it through the long channel of its north face.
Ascent to Akioud, a mountain difficult to access in summer due to the loose stone of its channels, however in winter when everything is upholstered we can enjoy its shady slope and offers a channel of more than 600 meters of descent.
Today we will climb to the highest point of the Atlas, the summit of Toubkal, with its 4167m offers spectacular views and full of contrast, from this cold summit we can get to observe the desert on clear days.
We will get up without hurry, we will pack our bags and a taxi will take us to Marrakech. Hotel accommodation and afternoon to visit the city and make a purchase whichever you want.
Travel day, return home. Breakfast at the hotel, taxi to the airport and plane home...
