My family and I spent the week at Afriski where the kids learnt to ski.
We stayed in Tirol, a lodge with various en suite rooms and were pleasantly surprised. It was fully equipped with under floor heating, electric blankets on each bed and double glazing throughout. The room and bathroom were clean and spacious enough. There is tea and coffee in the rooms but bring your own if you're a coffee snob. The restaurant and cafe serve tasty and varied food without takin advantage of th fact that they have a captive audience.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our kids loved their ski instructor who spent time on the first two days teaching them to ski.
The slopes had no natural snow when we arrived but Afriski managed to create and groom short but pristine runs that were maintained each evening, making for very enjoyable skiing for the whole family.
All in all it was a wonderful holiday and given that within six hours of leaving Johannesburg, we'd stopped for breakfast, checked in and were on the slopes skiing, I'd highly recommend it for people in Johannesburg looking to spend some time in the snow.
