Latest Toubkal Winter Conditions Report

A few days ago our head muleteer/cook Mohammed got some photos of the Toubkal Massif for us to share back for those keen to head to the High Atlas with winter conditions! From the photos it looks like the snow cover is around the 3,000m mark on sun exposed slopes and around the 2700m level on more shaded places!


I (James) will be out guiding next week and will post a full report on the mountaineering and climbing condition on finishing the trip. From what you can see in the photos some of the ice is in, there is generally good snow cover and the snowpack looks fairly settled!


More to come… but for now check out the photos!
