I still don’t know why, but every time I go back to Imlil I feel at home. It could be because I get to see Lachen again, the companion of my first Moroccan adventures, or maybe because I can talk and laugh with my friend Omar while drinking a cup of Berber Whisky. Perhaps it’s because when I go hiking there’s always someone in the nearby fields who greets me or maybe because I know that as soon as I reach the mountain refuge Neltner at an elevation of 3200m I will find other mountain guides happy to see me again and who often ask me about specific climbing knots and techniques. I’m sure it’s a mix of all these things!
It’s exactly there, where the sand leaves the pace to snow, that we will get to enjoy our ski touring holidays. We will be skiing among the highest Moroccan peaks like Akioud, Ras Ouanoukrim, Afella and Jabel Toubkal, the queen peak of the High Atlas with its elevation of 4167m.
In the second half of the trip, our accommodation will be mountain refuge Neltner, 3200m.
But there’s more than snow and mountains: at the end of our trip, we will get to visit the exotic souk in Marrakech, where it will be possible to taste the original delicious Moroccan cuisine.
