Snow+Rock Enduro – For the love of riding
The Snow+Rock Enduro, a bucket list riding experience, is set to take place in the mountains of Lesotho at Afriski Mountain Resort, 22 – 25 September 2018.
In partnership with Wild West and Raceworx KTM, 2 days of riding will feature lowland and high altitude routes over remote sections of the Maluti Mountains. Novice to advanced enduro riders are catered for on a selection of self navigated or guided routes lead by experienced Afriski guides with their knowledge of the local routes through valleys, rivers and rugged terrain.
This is an event for the whole family, with other adventure activities included. Mountain biking, monster rolling, paintball games and guided hikes will be on offer for all members of your family. Hearty meals, hot chocolate or Maluti beers will also be on offer at Africa’s highest restaurant – Sky Restaurant.
Afriski Mountain Resort offers a range of accommodation and catering options from backpackers to mountain chalets. Bookings can be made here: https://www.afriski.net/accommodation/
The Lowland ride start is situated just over the Calendonspoort border (approx 350km from Joburg). It is possible to leave home and drive directly to the start on Saturday, or stay over in Fouriesberg, Clarens or Afriski on Friday evening.
