Locals relish rare snowfall in Ouarzazate with pictures

Written by FDM

When it comes to snow in Morocco, there are not many regions to mention aside from Ifrane and Oukaimden. However, over the weekend, this meteorological condition has taken place in several areas, including the ones where snowfall is not really a norm.

The inhabitants of Ouarzazate woke up this morning, to their surprise, to a large white blanket covering the city. One of the rarest sights at the “door of the desert”. “We have not seen snow for at least thirty years,” exclaims Zoubir Bouhout, director of the Provincial Council of Tourism in Ouarzazate, quoted by Tourisma Post . The latter also recalled that the Tichka road was cut off following this precipitation. There will also be delays and cancellations in air traffic.

Risks that for the moment do not seem to disturb the locals and tourists, who massively shared images and videos of snow on social media:
