Morocco - skiing in the Atlas mountains on BBC2 at the mo
Skiing in morocco? I would never have believed it, so having googled, came across this......... don't forget to send us some pics
'There are two ski resorts in Morocco where snow is somewhat guaranteed to fall and visitors can rent equipment. Neither of these skiing areas should set you back more than $25 for the day:
Oukaimeden lies just south of Marrakech (46 miles) in the High Atlas Mountains and is usually covered in snow in January and February. There are ski lifts (you can also use a donkey) and skis to rent but don't expect high quality. There are a few places to eat snacks and two hotels to overnight at. Oukaimeden is an easy day trip from Marrakech and will cost you about $40 to get to by taxi.
Mischliffen is a ski area near the town of Ifrane in the Middle Atlas Mountains (close to Fes and Meknes). There are ski lifts but they don't always work but you can always walk up the slopes. The easiest way to get there is to take a taxi from Ifrane (6 miles away).'
And next year we've booked to go hill climbing in Holland and Hiking in Venice
