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.

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...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...More

Hi, I see on the website it states "Main Slope - OPEN 200m ". Would just like to confirm, is only the last 200m of the slope open? Is Afriski not making snow for the rest of the slope (at least up to 800m like July last year?) It surely is cold enough for it....

The main slope is only at 200m at the moment but the slope is being expanded but without natural snow fall it is taking longer than last year. Still we had a great time this last week.
