Tacheddirt Skiing offers the maximum off piste skiing for those who have limited time but want a ski touring experience in Morocco. It also takes you to perhaps the best runs in Morocco having both the best snow and the longest runs to offer. This trip is only suitable for accomplished off piste skiers who want a challenging ski experience. The High 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. The tiny village of Tacheddirt lies at 2,300 metres and provides an excellent access point to two nearby peaks Bou Iguenouane, 3882m and Tizi-n-Likemt, 3625m . Tacheddirt is the home of a mere few hundred people and about as simple as Morocco gets.
