Snowguns keep Lesotho’s only ski resort open to visitors

The resort of Afriski in the Kingdom of Lesotho is one of only two resorts that exist in southern Africa.

The resort’s summit is approximately 3222 m above sea level, and skiers enjoy a slope of about 1 km.

However, unreliable snowfall in the winter means that snowguns have to be used to keep the resort operating.
