    I was over it a couple of weeks ago. There was a small area of work at the start (heading to Marrakech from Taroudant) another towards the summit where some work was ongoing. You have to do this road it is amazing, it'd be a real shame to miss it!! Enjoy!!

    No more than about 2% of it, the rest is pretty much motorcycle heaven. Stunning views and lots of different sections of sweepers, twisties etc!!

    Done it many times......fantastic ride and views are superb. Unlikely to get snow where you are going but it can be seen on high peaks. Bit of road repair at the lower end after leaving Taraoudant and rain won’t make it fun but it’s not too difficult.....enjoy...

    The mountain forecast for Friday has 30mm of snow at 3500m, but just rain (6mm) at 2500m which is the height of the Test pass. I know temperatures have been really low this year but it would be really unusual to have snow at passes height this late in the year.
