off piste skiing


The Off Piste Experience is designed for those who wish to experience a day of off piste skiing in Morocco, perhaps even as first time off piste skiers.  Atlas Extreme will provide you with all the necessary equipment and tuition so that you may experience off piste skiing in Morocco’s foremost ski resort, Oukaimeden.  Atlas Extreme will provide transport from Marrakech to Oukaimeden (75km) where you will be met by your ski instructor.   He will assess your skiing ability and then provide any tuition you may need to safely ski off-piste.  (please note the ski instructors speak French only).  The rest of the day will be spent with your instructor enjoying the off piste routes around Oukaimeden before transport back to Marrakech.  Alternatively if you are only interested in skiing on piste this trip to Oukaimeden is also suitable.  Either way you can be assured of a unique skiing experience and something to tell your friends about. Oukaimeden is Africa’s highest ski resort, the village perched at 2,600m and its chairlift rising to the peak of Jebel Oukaimeden at 3,272m and servicing 5 runs at this height. There are also four drag lifts servicing the nursery and intermediate slopes.  The slopes tend to be uncrowded – even when busy – and skiers pick their way cautiously rather than swooshing in smooth turns.  The ski season lasts from December to March/April It has many of the facilities you would typically find in a European resort, but all done in a very Moroccan way.
