Having never experienced snow before, venturing up to Afri Ski in Leostho from Clarens in South Africa was an exceptionally mind blowing experience! We were fortunate enough to have been staying in Clarens after quite a thick snow had fallen in the Maluti Mountains.
The roads up where in great conditions but when there is snow fall I would highly recommend ascending in a 4x4. People in sedans were unable to get past some ice sections on the road.
Afri Ski was something else! The steaming gluhwein and Ski Bunnies (hot chocolate with Frangelico) were a welcomed tummy warmer after the trek up the pass. The vibe; festive, buzzy and jovial. Sitting on the deck watching all the pros and beginners taking on the slopes was entertaining. Perhaps next time we will be brave enough to attempt bum boarding...
We had a glimpse of what a European ski holiday would be like and I would rather choose an African ski holiday any day!
