Mo Ski Morocco

Morocco has two ski areas with lifts and several other high altitude spots for ski touring when the snow conditions in the Atlas mountains are good. This is statistically most commonly the case in January although the Moroccan ski season can last from December to March.

Morocco ski resorts are quite close to the country’s major cities as the crow flies, but unless you are a crow it will usually take longer than the distance stat suggests because of poor quality transport links. That’s usually less of a problem if you opt for the helisking option.

The leading ski area Oukaïmeden for example is less than 75km (45 miles) from Marrakech with slopes up to 3200m opening up a lift-served drop of 1000m – a world class stat. International skiers and boarders who do visit however report antiquated lifts (the resort was first created by French colonials in the 1940s) and decades old rental gear – so the advice is to bring your own.

Skiing Morocco may be about to chance however as the wealthy Dubai-based property group behind Ski Dubai is reported to have purchased Oukaïmeden and to have plans to develop a ‘world class ski resort’ there. This isn’t the first such a plan to maximise the ski area’s potential (new lifts were promised from Spain in the 1990s) and it is yet to be seen whether it come to fruition.
