You?re not likely to come to South Africa for the snow! We?re a sun-blessed land and we don't get much snow at all, but what snow we do have, we make good use of. Our lone ski resort is high in the Drakensberg Mountains in the northern part of the Eastern Cape. It's a wonderfully scenic drive to get there (you may need to be picked up by four-wheel drive for the last section).
Once there, you'll find little Alpine-style ski chalets, chair lifts, a good après-ski environment in the cosy pub, and ... snow. Sometimes natural, sometimes courtesy of the snow machine (which keeps the level up to standard) at all times from the beginning of June to the end of August.
Organised trips are run from Cape Town and Johannesburg, or you could book and drive yourself there.
