Skiing in Lesotho is always a somewhat haphazard affair. The best time to go is between May and August.

Skiing slopes are found in the Oxbow area. The snow on Lesotho slopes is not packed and can often be icy - conditions that can be 'leg-breaking'. The best time for skiing is from June through to August. It's wise to get a few dry slope lessons if your skiing is not proficient.

The longest slope in Africa is a 1.5-2km slope called Mahlesela Hill. It's just 11km away from Oxbow Lodge where you can hire ski equipment.

Unfortunately, there is no way of guaranteeing you'll hit snow. But snow or no snow, the area is beautiful and the mountain walks are lovely.
