Lesotho (30 April 2021) – This morning, Afriski Mountain Resort in Lesotho welcomed its first major snow fall for the winter season.

The SA Weather Service warned that temperatures are expected to drop in most parts of the country from Friday, which will be accompanied by showers, what they didn’t expect was the snow that started at around 2 am this morning and continued for a few hours covering the landscape around the Afriski Mountian resort with approximately 10cm of snow.

This comes after good news received earlier this week that the Lesotho borders are open for leisure and business travel!!

“We are very excited about the early snow and to welcome our guests and loyal snow enthusiasts back to Afriski in a few weeks. It might be a little different with COVID protocols in place, but we will offer the same quality ski experience people have come to know”, comments Peter Peyper, Afriski Managing Director.

It is important to note that the roads in the area are currently closed for 2×4 vehicles, and we ask that guests view our social media platforms and website to check conditions before travelling to us.

The ski season opens on the 10th of June and runs until the end of August; we look forward to having our guests hit the slopes with us.
