Morocco Adventure in the Atlas Mountains

Few places in the world will overwhelm your senses with contrasts as intense as Morocco’s sharp white sun against towering golden limestone cliffs; expansive vistas of palm trees framed in 4,000 meter high snow- capped peaks; slow-cooked dishes bursting with the flavor of preserved lemons, green olives and cumin; robed and hooded nomads traversing the desert alongside masses of camels, sheep, and goats; and narrow, winding medieval streets bustling with merchants, artisans, storytellers and snake charmers.

A true backcountry skiing adventure, this itinerary pairs you with world class operators to get you further out into the wild Ait Bougomez Valley, where you can experience first hand the rich culture and unbelievable skiing that Morocco has to offer.

It's not just about the skiing: this is an opportunity to learn about the Moroccan and Berber communities' culture and way of life.

You and your IFMGA guide will travel with a Moroccan mountain guide who knows the ins and outs of life in the Atlas mountains. Significant time spent hiking, some assisted by mules to carry the equipment, will be entirely worth it when you arrive at the best skiing Morocco has to offer.

This itinerary includes 4 full days of touring and skiing, accommodations at remote mountain refuges and guest houses, most meals. Getting out into this region will allow you to experience many of the best descents, including:

  • Jbel M’goun (4068m), the second highest peak in North Africa,
  • Jbel Oumsoud (3883m),
  • Jbel Tarkeddit (3650m), and
  • Jbel Azourki (3677m).
