Our mission: To preserve Tiffindell as a Ski and Alpine resort for future generations, so that they may enjoy what has become a South African 'National Treasure'.

Tiffindell came into existence in 1993, born by avid skiers and run by passionate snow lovers.  Since then the resort has grown to become a true Alpine resort for all seasons.

In Winter (June, July, & August) it is all about snow! If Mother Nature doesn’t provide it – we will. Shape it, roll in it, ski on it, ride it, throw it or just enjoy it – given to us for just a few months of the year it is too pure and clean to miss.

As a Ski Resort it has snow, ski lifts, a restaurant, ski shop and ski school offering three months of skiing and snowboarding during June, July and August. Non-aspiring skiers can join in to enjoy a unique experience making snowmen, throwing snow balls or tobogganing, making it the perfect family holiday for young and old. 

Worried about the snow? Tiffindell’s state of the art snowmaking equipment allows us to make snow throughout the season. Meaning not even Mother Nature can stop us from skiing. We have the best snowmakers in the country and we do everything possible to ensure our snow lasts throughout the winter season.

We want you to share this experience! Bring your friends, staff, kids or mother-in-law but don’t miss out.  Enjoy the ‘MAGIC of Snow’ in the highest Alpine region of South Africa. From the family holiday to corporate incentives, be introduced to the world of snow at Tiffindell.

In Summer, Spring and Autumn, Tiffindell becomes one of the best off-the-beaten-track adventure-lands in South Africa. Activities include high altitude hiking, mountain biking, grass skiing, mountain boarding, photography, rock art, birding, some of SA’s best fly fishing, quad biking, and the famous “8 Passes” route for motorcyclists and 4x4’s. Tiffindell is known internationally for our flowers, as the unique alpine flowers bring flora enthusiasts from the four corners of the world.

As an Alpine Resort it is about altitude and attitude. Tiffindell has the altitude at 2720m, nestling snugly on the slope of Ben McDhui (3001m), the highest peak in the whole Cape Province. The highest resort in South Africa! The atitude is for adventure. Ready for mountain biking down Kloppershoek? Hiking to Telle Falls? Adventure biking to the top of the Cape? Or a relaxed attitude? Don’t forget your camera for rare birds, dramatic views, the alpine flowers or the trophy pic of the big rainbow, just before you release him.
