Yes, I've been in June, I was carrying a two season bag. I ended up sleeping in the mesh tent inner, no fly sheet and on top of the bag. Other years I've needed the fly and the sleeping bag because there has been rain all day and well into the evening and the temperature has dropped sufficiently that I needed to be inside the bag.
I sleep warm.
Where in the Atlas are you going?
Great! Is this through a company or self organised?
Generally, the mornings and early afternoons are best weatherwise. After 1400, if the weather is going to turn, that's when it'll go.
Have a great time. If you get the chance to visit Tinmal, it has a lovely mosque, roofless at the moment so not consecrated and you can walk about in it. Beautiful light and sandstone brick
I was wearing HanWags, three season boots.
I now wear shoes pretty much ll the time apart from in snow.
The weather has changed in Morocco in the past 25 years. There always used to be snow in the Atlas all year round but more recently there has been less rain and thus less snow so it hasn't lasted beyond May. I don't live there now so I can't tell you for sure how it is. I'd be surprised though, if you encounter snow.
If it were me I'd wear shoes. If you prefer boots, I'd advise a non GTX pair if you have them, otherwise your feet may get too hot.
Another place to visit in the Atlas is Telouet, ancient home of the Glaoui family. Try to read "Lords of the Atlas" before you go - you might find it in Morocco but it is banned there so you may well not.
Depends how high you are sleeping at and if camping or in 'gites'.
Under 2000m or in 'gites' a 2 season bag should do, higher than that, personally I'd take a 3 season bag rated to -5c or less, just in case.
2 or 3 season boots will do, I climbed Toubkal in the worst winter for 20yrs in 3 season boots.
Enjoy the trip, lovely place to see.
As it's an organised trek, I'd think they wouldn't stray to far from water sources.
You may find that if there are porters/cooks they will boil the water you use, or bottled water will be available.
It would be worth sending an email to them asking about the water provision.
Can you be a bit more specific with your question Sylvia?
Do you mean how to pack to go to Morocco or how to pack when you are there and going on the trek?
