5 Days Ski touring in the Atlas Mountain

The Atlas mountains are one of the most exotic areas to go ski touring. To go on a skiing holiday to a country more famous for its deserts and beaches is an original experience that will certainly leave an impression.

Toubkal, with an elevation of 4167 m is the highest mountain in Northern Africa. It is surrounded by high mountains that together form a massive mountain range about 80 km south of Marrakech. The mountains position, altitude and valley surroundings means that it snows here throughout the winter.
