    I have been looking at the trekking options in the High Atlas mountains for 2018 and have discovered that ski touring is also possible.

    I was in Morocco 1 month ago . it snowed down to about 1200 metres in the Atlas mountains .
    There seemed to be snow deep enough for touring above about 3200 metres.

    Morocco and Atlas are awesome. Amazing culture, amazing mountains. Toubkal, whilst high is not too hard a treck in summer, but definitely need guides in winter. There are some really cool multi-day ski tours, with several high altitude refuges. There was a heli-ski operation operating out of Marakesh but they've been shut down recently by the government.
