Skiing in January

Oukaimeden, Morocco

Oukaimeden, Morocco

I was thrilled — and a bit scared. As a Norwegian I should have been "born with skies on my legs" as we say in this nation that gave birth to the word "ski". But I had not been out skiing for 18 years!
But the thought of getting back to skiing of all places in Morocco, and getting a course from a local instructor sounded so exotic to me that I could not let the chance pass when I heard that there was snow in the mountains when I visited Marrakech in January 2000.
