Description
Dubai is a place renowned for its extravagance, so it should come as no surprise that their engineers managed to build a ski park in the Arabian Peninsula. Spanning 22,500 square meters, Ski Dubai is ... Read more
an indoor ski resort associated with one of the largest shopping malls in the world, the Mall of the Emirates. Supporting up to 1,500 guests, the park features a 60-meter-high mountain, a 90-meter-long quarter pipe for snowboarding and the 3,000-square-meter Snow Park for general wintertime fun. For once it would be crazy not to bring a heavy coat for the desert.

Where else in the world can you ride a chairlift and ski on snow inside? A unique experience which fits the extreme wealth of Dubai. Bring winter gloves with you though, because your hands will get super cold.

Ski Dubai is the highlight of the Mall of the Emirates. It is an experience unlike anything else to be able to ski in the middle of the desert. However, it's uniqueness means that there are sometimes long lines to be able to take part in the actual skiing.

Love the place...experience for the adults and kids alike. Though the management there needs to provide better sized and clean ski clothes...picking up from a lot where 30% are tore off or are oversized for most of the kids is just disappointing

Ski Dubai, located in the Mall of the Emirates, is an indoor ski facility with a few different runs. Pretty amazing, considering you're in the middle of Dubai. I think this place looks really fun for kids with a lot of different activities like sledding and live penguins.

A must see if you're in Dubai. Its 100+ outside and these people are wrapped up in thermals. Definitely fun for the kids...and the adults should try it just to say they did!

This was the first indoor ski in the world. What make this more remarkable is in a middle of very hot dessert, when outdoor temperature usually go over 100 with humidity ! So in fact they able to pull this off is nothing short of engineering marvel. The mall has a huge window that visitor can view the ski. The ski is more design for beginner and kids, isn't for professional.

Dubai builds anything it desires and the word “impossible” does not exist in this city. Ski Dubai is the act of bringing the outdoors to the indoors, bringing snowy hills to the deserts. For any outdoor enthusiast that will have a yearning for cool weather and fluffy snow while in the scathing sun, this is a wonderful alternative to being outdoors in the summer heat. While the hill does not replace beautiful natural ski mountains, the 60 meter high slope with a 400 meter run is a good compromise for the desert. It’s a fully equipped ski resort, rental includes skiing or snowboarding equipment and suits. Enjoying a hot cocoa after at the lodge adds to the ski resort experience.

More interesting for the people watching than the experience itself. An entertaining diversion if you decide to cool your heels in the aircon at the mall.

Yeah, I really liked it but that was because I could put my white guilt on hold for those moments when I was rushing down the artificial ski slope in the middle of the Arabian desert. Actually, the realization that the carbon imprint I had left by helping to fund such an prideful endeavor didn't hit me till after I had returned the snowboard rental, boots and coat. At that point, the only thing left to do was go shopping.

Pretty neato to have a Ski slope inside the mall. We never went inside to experience the man made slope but we could see how people were enjoying their time. If you're craving for some skiing then be my guest :)

unless you lived in a desert all your life, this is hardly the experience. Fake snow, doesn't feel well on skis. a short slope, nothing to impress. better watch through the glass windows the local Emiratis sporting long coats over their dresses, playing with the snow..

Normally people would think of Dubai as being out in the middle of the Arabian desert, full of sand, dust and scorching heat. All the above is true, with the addition of ski slopes with snow and ice. Yup, in the desert! Proving that man can build whatever he desires, there is a indoor ski resort, complete with snow, slopes and tow lift. Here you can ski or snowboard down the 400 meter long, 60 meter high slopes, or for the non skiers, play by the slides or build a snowman. You can hire ski equipment and suits to wear inside, and there are skiing lessons available to book as well.

BRING GLOVES!!! They provide you with everything else, but gloves and a hat. I was trying to learn to snowboard and gloves are a must. I couldn't feel them for the rest of the day after leaving. One of the things you don't realize being in the desert and going into a ski slope is just how cold it actually needs to be to keep snow, snowy.

For experienced skiers or snowboarders I could image that it would be pretty boring with only one big run, but for those who are just learning it is a great time. Half a day on the slopes or on the ground in my case, then grab a cup of hot cocoa in the lodge or a movie in the mall. It is certainly something to experience.
