Well, almost......

When Bridget asked if I wanted to come ski mountaineering in Morocco, I thought it was an elaborate wind-up. But, yes, there is snow in Morocco. In fact they even have a little lift served ski resort. And lots of mules to do some of the hard work for you.

Jbel Toubkal is the one in the middle/top of the pic above. We skied up the obvious wide coulour to the right of the summit then up the ridge to the top. After a wee rest to let the surface of the snow soften a little it was on the planks for a 1000+m descent back to the hut trying hard not to feel smug as we cruised past the walkers.

The summit (4167m). The sahara is the bit in the distance!

Hassan our main mule man.

Food was good but Nido seems to be haunting my every step.....
