Cape Town - When you think of a skiing holiday, the African continent very rarely springs front of mind.
But deep in the Maloti mountains you'll find Afriski Mountain Resort
- the only ski destination in Lesotho.
The resort has literally carved a niche for itself, by giving those who want to try a bit of skiing, snowboarding or simply a bit of acclimatisation to snow conditions.
This past weekend it hosted the Afriski #WinterWhip
snowboarding JAM, with competitors from all over the world heading to its Kapoko Park to compete.
Check out these amazing pics of the event sent in to us. All photos by Afriski photographer Shawn van Zyl. For full details visit:
