Oukaïmeden in the High Atlas, Morocco - March 2009
Oukaïmeden is one of the premier skiing resorts on the African continent. It is located in Morocco, about 150 kilometres from Marrakech, in the Atlas mountains near Jebel Toubkal.
The skiing area is at the altitude between 2600 and 3200 metres and it has a couple of lifts. There are some hotels and ski rental facilities. However, Oukaimeden does not usually get much snow and skiing on the steeper slopes is usually not possible.
