Lesotho “summer” skiing
Afriski features an extensive snow-making system that accentuates what falls naturally during the Lesotho winter. With four lifts, this is certainly not the Swiss Alps or the Colorado Rockies, but the unique appeal of skiing in Africa draws both South African and overseas visitors. Lesotho also boasts an average of 300 days of sunshine each year, with the wintertime dry season offering an almost 100 percent chance of sunny weather. And though buildings outside the main tourist areas are not heated, the landscapes are quite beautiful. Lesotho's untouched scenery draws adventurous hikers and culture-minded explorers alike.
