A ski resort in the desert! Indeed, thick snow envelops the
Jebal Oukaimeden mountain peak during the winter months (usually
January and February), just a 46-mile (74km) drive from Marrakech.
The town of Oukaimeden, which can be reached by taxi or self-drive
car, is well equipped for the skiers that seek restaurants, ski
equipment to rent, and comfortable hotels, set in lush greenery
backed by blue mountains. Skiers can ascend the mountain by donkey
or camel, but there are also modern ski lifts.
