It’s one thing to experience one or more of the world’s most exclusive and luxurious ski resorts, but quite another to be able to say that you have been skiing in one or more of the world’s most unusual resorts. How many of your friends can say they’ve been skiing in South Africa, or Lebanon, for instance?
If you’re interested in something different, here are my suggestions for destinations you might not normally consider, which are available as specialist luxury or all-inclusive ski holidays:
1. Oukaimeden Resort, Morocco
When you think of holidays in Morocco, you probably think of deserts and camels, maybe some mosques, beaches, spicy food, that kind of thing.
But just 80 km from Marrakesh is Oukaimeden Ski Resort, three thousand meters up in the Atlas Mountains.
The ski lift will take you up to experience trails suitable for all levels, with plenty of accommodation ranging from chalets to five-star hotels.
