Pre-Trek Briefing
What a stark contrast from Marrakech where you find the chain on the horizon of the High Atlas. If the proximity of the Sahara’s hard to make us imagine a country of mountains and snow, Morocco is the most mountainous countries of North Africa.Since the high peaks, where the view is superb, steep slopes and corridors received,the field is well suited to the practice of ski touring.
