We have been going to AfriSki for 3years during the ski season. We normally stay in Andorra. Very basic accommodation but we don't really need more. Always had warm water. Food and drinks are a bit pricey. Ski equipment not the best but sufficient.

We went to Afriski this weekend for the 2nd Maluti Mayhem MTB weekend. As someone with strict dietary requirements I was a bit anxious when it came to the meals for the weekend. Turned out I had nothing to worry about - the chef made amazing food, catering to all. The variety for me as a vegan was excellent, delicious... More

Spent a day out as a group of friends. you can either buy a full day pass or a half day pass. Lessons are also available for 2 hours at an additional cost. In addition we had to pay for the hiring of the skis and boots. There is generally no information available when you first get there and you... More

The most beautiful place to visit during snow season. a Wonderland cover in a white blanket. Skying, warm coffee and good food that's all at Afriski.

We visited Afriski for the day in August 2016, and what a lot of fun we had in the snow. It was my wife's first time skiing and we had a lot of fun. The personal and instructors they have are very friendly and knowledgeable. It was also the Xperia Winter Whip which made it even more fun with the... More

There are good and bad sides to Afriski. First let me give you 10 good reasons why Afriski rocks in my opinion: 1.For the mere mortals that do not ski in Europe this resort is a fun place for anyone (especially children) to learn how to ski; 3.The restaurant looks good, and the food is actually good; 4.Your cheap $10...

Had to stay here for business and it offered all I needed - warm bed and ok food. Some rooms are so small you cant swing a cat in it. On a later visit stayed in a much more spacious room but they arent always available. Love the ambiance of the restaurant.

Wow! We were blessed with 2 feet of snow while travelling en route to Afriski in the mountains. When you descend from the top of the pass, you see this wonderland. Like a magazine. We spent the day on the slopes tubing and relaxing. Excellent weather. Not the normal holiday crowd, Facilities very good. Recommend the WoolyMammoeth! And the choc... More

Our stay exceeded all expectations. Admittedly, we were lucky to have such great snow, but the resort is a world-class mini-version of a European or American ski resort. Good, clean, simple accommodation at 3-star Tirol chalet, great food and beverage at the Gondola Bar and the Sky restaurant with friendly and efficient service throughout. The skiing offers extremely gentle slopes... More

Couldn't ask for a better weekend away,staff was great and friendly at every point you move from boots and ski's to snowpass which was great but one major problem for me and im sure for alot is why not have the equipment shop closer to the snowpass counter you can't expect a 6 year old to carry his ski's and...
