/ Jebel Toubkal
I think you'll find most 'trekking' groups go with 'soft' boots clients - B1 compatible. It is a long snow plod but the early traverse of a slope above an icefall is not a place to be with sloppy footwear.
B3 seems a bit OTT to me - quite a tough walk in in B3 boots.
They had early snow when I was there last week.
Totally doable - we flew out of manchester 7am - taxi to Imlil by 2. Walked into hut by 7pm. Next day warm up peak , but you could Jebel. 6am start on sunday to summit, back by 11. In Marrakesh by 6pm - hotel and out for dinner by 8. Flight home following day at 11am. Sorted.
you'll love it - a grand experience. Just watch the initial slope above the refuge on the normal if its dumped down, id reckon the slope above it http://www.ukclimbing.com/images/dbpage.html?id=68142 (this is taken from near summit looking back down route) is a bit of a bottleneck, with some potential avalanche slopes either side. have a safe trip, IIM
