“A trek to remember…………………………..a beauty to worship………………………”

What a stark contrast from marrakech to Fes via sahara desert where you find the chain on the horizon of the High Atlas. If the proximity of the Sahara's hard to make us imagine a country of mountains and snow, Morocco is the most mountainous countries of North Africa.Since the high peaks, where the view is superb, steep slopes and corridors received,the field is well suited to the practice of ski touring.

What is the weather like?

What is the weather like? The best time of year for trekking is from around May to October. In May and November it can still be very cold at night – below freezing – and there is the possibility of snowfalls which can result in a change of route. Usually by the end of May the snow has gone and even the summit of Toubkal is free of snow. In the height of summer it can be very hot – up to 40C – during the day but the nights are still cold. Although the climate is generally dry and sunny, heavy storms can occur at any time.
