There's nothing like this in the world! And I don't mean figuratively , there just isn't any other indoor ski resort anywhere in this whole wide world! When you first enter you are just overwhelmed by the sheer size and brilliance of this place, specially because just outside this place it's a sweltering 120 degrees Fahrenheit ! They've really taken... More

Its the best Snow and Ski experience I have ever been to. We went there with cousins and its ideal to enjoy it with your group of 3 people and above. There are two ticket options available. The cheaper one gives access only to the snow and kids play area with 4 rides to experience (2 of them are for... More

Very expensive but so worth it! My boys (6 year old twins) were able to get a one on one experience with lots of Penguins. We were able to pet, hug, kiss and feed many penguins. The tour was very informative and interactive. We did not purchase an all inclusive pass because we didn't have time to do the Snow... More

We booked snow experience and the penguin tour. It cost a lot of money. Because we had to wait for our appointment to see the penguins, we spent time in the snow. It is an experience because it is really cold, but without daylight it feels only like being locked into a huge freezer. The penguins are lovely and we... More

Well, I learnt skying at the age of 5 - yes I know I am privileged - and while living in Europe skying was one of our weekend and holiday pass-time during winter season. But nowadays do we really need to cool the whole year round some ski slope in the desert? You see that I am not a fan... More

Had a great few hours there. Gets a bit cold after a few hours. Lots of fun and really had a laugh watching my friends learn to ski and I enjoyed the rides available. Highly recommend it for anyone. Staff were helpful and friendly too. Remember to take your own hat and gloves as they are not supplied but aren't... More

I booked the 2 hour pass while my girlfriend went for a 1 hour beginner lesson. In the price all equipment and cloths is already included. The only thing not included are the gloves, which i highly recommend to buy a pair, because it is really cold in the hall. The beginner lesson was good and my girlfriend (who skied... More

I wanted to take up some lessons at the Ski Dubai and approached them. The whole place is very professionally managed. They provide us with all the kit that is required. The classes are conducted well. I took about 3 lessons and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. This place has things to do for every age category. So no one is... More

You can't not have fun in this place - it's got to be done just to say you've done it - snow skied in the desert. Everything is provided so you can just rock up and they'll give you new socks, ski suit, gloves etc. Weekends can be quite busy. Kids parties are well managed and offer a variety of... More

It's fun to see Ski Dubai once, but it's not the end of the world if you can't make it. It's pretty cold & they charge extra for good gloves. If you don't want to ski, you can always tube & that's a nice option.
