Skiing in Lesotho


Skiing in Lesotho is always a somewhat haphazard affair. The best time to go is between May and August. The most convenient accommodation would be Afriski which is located next to the ski slopes.

The snow on Lesotho slopes is not packed and can often be icy —conditions that can be ‘leg-breaking’. The Ski Deck staff advise a couple of dry slope lessons if your skiing is not proficient. They offer specials on lessons during the mid-year period.

The Ski Deck has information about conditions, although, if you’ve booked way in advance, there is no way of guaranteeing you’ll hit snow. But snow or no snow, the area is beautiful and the mountain walks are lovely.
