Not counting our guide (and the pilot of course) there are four of us in the Eurocopter AS350 Écureuil helicopter as it lands high in Morocco’s Atlas Mountains.

We are the only heli-skiers in Africa. Less than half an hour ago we were still at our delightfully atmospheric hotel, the Kasbah Agounsane, bathed in mid-March sunshine, surrounded by olive groves, with some hotel guests already soaking up the sun around the generous swimming pool.

Well the girls did it - they won...  How wonderful. They won in the Best Visitors Trail category and we are all very very proud of them - especially as they had to endure all those bars, sunshine and skiing!  Hannah will be putting up a post detailing their run when her hangover clears and she can see singularly again... So well done again girls and just love the costumes - and no, I won't be sporting this little number at the Ski Show in October!!
