Mount Toubkal Winter Climb

Hi,

I can't wait for it. 😊

I have just confirmed my place on this trip. I love the Atlas and am looking forward to building my first snowman ⛄ at 4167m! 😝 

Ha ha ha. ☃️

I never climbed so high. My last one was 3,776m. What about you? I think it is going to be challenging but really rewarding. 😊

I only saw the Atlas Mountains from afar. 😜

I've climb Toubkal before and another couple over 4000m. Really keen to do it in the snow. Will be lovely to get into the mountains for a bit of r and r 😴

Definitively! 👍😊

Have you done any snow climbing before Vanessa? It's my first experience of that. What have you been to Morocco for previously? 😎🏔🏔🏔

It is also going to be my first time.                      I went to Marrakech for a city break after travelling around China for a month. It was a really relaxing break.                                             I never did an organised tour before so it should be interesting.

Just waiting for confirmation but I am joining this trip too in December. Really looking forward to ending the year on a high :) 

Welcome to this sojourn into the High Atlas Rachel,

It is a rugged beautiful place. Have you been to Morocco and the Atlas before? 😁

Hi, no I haven't so I'm really looking forward to it. I went to base camp a few years ago and did some mountaineering in Chamonix in 2014 so I have had a tiny bit of experience of altitude and snowy conditions but not huge amounts. Never been to Africa so I'm very excited about that too :)

Fabulous, it will be a real treat. And sorry I spelt your name incorrectly Rachel.

 

Rachael! 🤔 It's auto correct on my phone...forgive it!

Hi, I too have signed up for this trip! Very excited :) 

Hi everyone! 

I am joining the trek to Mount Toubkal as well! 

Are you all living in the UK? I am from Belgium so I'll meet the group in Marrakesh! 

Looking forward to it :) 

I guess you guys (and girls) are all Marrakech bound on 16-Nov.  Looking forward to meeting you all and a great trek up Toubkal.  Who's up for a snowball fight?

Hello Julia, Mathias and Dwarf (not your real name I'm guessing). This is fabulous. I've not been on a trip where so many of the group are chatting before we head overseas. How nice! It will be great to meet everyone. Yes snowball fights, snowmen and maybe if we are feeling super creative we can attempt an igloo as well! Or is that over-ambitious! I would add I won't sleep in it however, the accommodation is far too homely. There's still over a month to go, so who knows we may get more of the group chatting before we leave. We know Mathias is from Belgium, I'm from the UK near Brighton. Where are the rest of you guys from? ☺

Wow! So many of us... Hello to everyone. Well, I was born in Paris but I have been living in London for ages so I hold dual citizenship. My friend Samira is also coming. She is French, born in Morocco. Yes to snowmen and igloo but I will skip the snow fight. Actually, I am wondering how much energy left will I have after climbing. 😜 I am hoping to do both ascents. 

Guys - just realised from MikeJ-B33's post that I've joined the wrong chat.  You're all off to Toubkal in December whilst I'm off next week.  Look out for my photos - I hope you all have as good a time as I'm going to have.

And correct... Dwarf isn't my real name!

Have a great trip! Looking forward to seeing your pictures. 

Well, I am a born and bred Devon girl and definitely up for some snow fun :-) This is the first time I've travelled abroad by myself so slightly apprehensive will even catch the right plane! If I do, I look forward to meeting you all.

Myself and my partner (who is also coming on this trip) are from Bristol :)

Hi there, I am assuming this is the 28th Dec long weekend trip - yes? If so I'm coming too. I live in St Andrews, Scotland. I've not been above 3000m before, so I don't know how the altitude will affect me.

Hi Catherine,

You should be fine. Make sure you drink plenty  of water. 😊

Hi guys,

I wanted to clarify as it seems there is some confusion. Who's taking the 23-30 December Toubkal climb and who's doing the long weekend? 

I assumed everyone here was leaving on the 23 December but Catherine B certainly isn't. 

Let's resolve the uncertainty and let everyone know which trip it is you are on.

Thanks

I'm with Catherine B! Short weekend on 28th Dec - hiya Catherine :-)

 

 

Hi Julia

Apparently there are 7 women and 3 men going on our trip - 6 solo travellers and 2 groups of 2 people travelling together, so 2 down, 8 to find!

Best wishes

Catherine B

I'm doing the long weekend trip along with my partner so 6 more to find! 

Hi Rachael - looking forward to meeting you both!

Catherine B

Morning guys and gals,

To avoid further confusion I have created a separate chat for the week trip to Mount Toubkal. If you are on that trip come and make yourself known there so we can differentiate from the long weekenders. 

Have a great trip all you leaving the UK on 28th. May see you in the hotel briefly. 

Cheers 

Mike

Hi,

We are not on the same trip. :(  I am doing the week trip to Mount Toubkal. I did not even know that they were doing a weekend trip. Have a lovely climb ladies. We might see you in Marrakech. 

OK MikJ-B33 and Vanessa - shame I won't get to meet you except perhaps in passing - have a great trip!

Catherine

OK MikJ-B33 and Vanessa - shame I won't get to meet you except perhaps in passing - have a great trip!

Catherine

Alowa, I am also in for the long weekend! 

But I will stay another week in Morocco after the trip.

Looking forward! 

Hello Mathias - looking forward to meeting you in what 19 days time - it is getting closer!!

Best wishes

Catherine B

 

I traveled from childhood. I like these tourist sites: https://set-travel.com/en/. I like such categories as "The Deepest Sea". I return to the topic, I have a question. Where better to go to rest in the spring from Russia?
