Ski Dubai is one of a kind place. I'm not a skier, but it was a nice way to experience a cold environment from the comfort of a mall. I have to say however, that it is on the pricy side.

We heard so much about this attraction it was one of our first stops in Dubai. At first I could not believe my eyes, there really was snow inside of the mall! Not only snow, there were ski lifts, big plastic balls for snow fun, amusement rides, sledding, penguins and much, much more! The place was full with people of... More

Residing in a tropical country, i am not exposed to freezing weather or even snow! For me, it was a thrilling experience. There are several packages to choose from depending on your budget, and if you're a first timer. Kids will like the penguin experience wherein they get to see, touch and take pictures with the penguin. Ski dubai is... More

We spent the day at The Snow Park, rather than the ski slopes. Take layers of clothing and wear better gloves than the ones that come free. The snow slides and rides are enormous fun.

By far one of the most wonderful and beautiful attraction at Dubai. Located in Emirates mall which also has a metro station, this is one of the best places to visit when in Dubai. This place should be visited early around 10 am as it is relatively empty and can be enjoyed completely and at leisure. The fees are based... More

Everything in Dubai is so maxed out, and this is no exception. Just the thought of buildning a ski slope in the middle of the desert is crazy, and they did it. If you are a skier this is not much (20 sek run) but it actually is a perfect slope to lern skiing. Good snow quality. Attraction is fun... More

I learned and mastered snow boarding in one day! I had an awesome teacher, from Belarus, and by the end of our day, I was snowboarding on my own. So fun! They provide equipment (no hat or gloves) and guidance.
