Just 70km from Marrakech is the village of Oukaimden, Marrakech’s ski resort!
With a couple of button lifts and one chair lift that goes all the way to the top of the mountain, it’s a really fun day in the snow! Equipment rental is available for skis, boots and poles, and an all day all lift pass costs 100 dirhams (at time of writing).
If you don’t want to ski, you can rent snow boots and take the chair lift up the mountain for some stunning snow covered mountain scenery. Round trip on the chair lift for non-skiers is 25 dirhams.
When you’re done with the snow, there are lots of delicious options for lunch. Local fare – tagines, brochettes etc, or Chez Juju, where you can have a 3-course meal, both Moroccan and international cuisine. They also have wine, beer and hard liquor to warm you up!
