Skiing in Oukaimden

Private Tour
Skiing in Morocco is more novelty than sport. There are two resorts: Mischliffen, near Fès, and Oukaïmden, near Marrakesh. Mischliffen is little more than a sledding hill, with unreliable snow coverage and two surface lifts, which do not operate all the time visit (it depends on the level of snows). The ski rentals are ludicrous – old straight skis, many with broken bindings and rusting edges, splayed across the parking lot by vendors desperate to earn some cash. Professional skiers should bring all their ski rentals. A word to the wise: Make sure the ski bottoms on your sled lay flat against the snow. 
In contrast Oukaïmden, Morocco’s only true ski resort has super-steeps, a whopping 1000m vertical drop, and North Africa’s highest lift – a fixed-grip double chair to the mountain’s rocky, treeless, wind-whipped summit, 3,265m (10,711ft) above sea level. At the base area, there’s a proper rental shop with good boots, skis and winter clothing, but that doesn’t stop hucksters from rushing your car on arrival, all eager to rent equipment of questionable merit. Warm up on the beginner slope, where J-bar surface lifts haul you up the hill old-school style. Once you’ve got your ski legs, pop your bindings and head for the donkeys at the base of the slopes to hitch a ride to the chairlift. You could walk it in 10 minutes, but why would you with a donkey waiting to carry you.
