Picture the city of Dubai, and you will probably imagine skyscrapers, beaches, malls and the heat of the Middle-Eastern climate. What you might not know is that in Dubai, it snows every day – if you know where to look! In a city of dazzling modernity, Ski Dubai stands as perhaps the most breathtaking technological achievement of them all; an incredible, massive indoor centre dedicated to winter sports, and boasting real, fresh snow all year round.
Whether you fancy skiing, snowboarding, or simply having fun in the snow, you can experience winter enjoyment any time you like, right in the heart of Dubai. Situated in the city's vast Mall of the Emirates, Ski Dubai is nothing less than a fully formed indoor mountain-side. It's the Middle East's first indoor ski resort, and it is the largest in the world.
Skiers can choose from five thrilling runs, including – for the most confident – the world's first indoor black run. There are gentle runs available if you're a little rusty, plus lessons available for beginners. Adjoining the ski runs is a 3,000 square metre snow park, featuring toboggan and sled tracks, slides, a mystical ice cave, climbing towers and much more. Incredibly, Ski Dubai even offers the chance for visitors to encounter real penguins, which live in their own enclosure within the snow park.
There's no need to worry about bringing winter gear and equipment with you – Ski Dubai will provide everything you need. Plus, once you've shown off your skills on the slopes and worked up an appetite, there's lots of tasty food and drink to be enjoyed, right here on the mountain-side. Relax in the cosy surroundings of Ski Dubai's very own ski lodge, St Moritz Café, where you can enjoy a delicious meal. Alternatively, make a pit stop at the Avalanche Café, where hungry skiers and snowboarders can grab a quick, satisfying snack before heading straight back into the action.
Ski Dubai stands as stunning proof that, when it comes to the technical ambition of Dubai, nothing is impossible. This is the perfect destination for a magical, fun-packed day out for all ages – an amazing place that really has to be experienced to be believed.
