“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,” says Peter Peyper, Afriski Managing Director.

Peter advises guests to check Afriski’s social media platforms or website for conditions before travelling to them.
