So this is a Must Do! How often can you tell your friends that you actually "snow skied in the Desert" At the Mall of Emirates. If you know ahead of time that you will want to do this...Bring your own gloves, hat, and thick wool socks. Included in the ski rental are socks, however not thick enough (your toes... More

I'd assumed that being an indoor ski slope, it would be one of those tiny crowded slopes. Whilst it isn't the Alps, is is huge - deceptively so. I'm a good skier and really enjoyed the opportunity to brush up on my skills. One important point to note. BUY GLOVES! I was cheap about it, figured 'how cold can it... More

Such a fab experience to be able to ski on a big slope inside! Clothing provided was good although after 40 minutes the cold does start to kick in especially when sitting on huge chairlifts. Thermals needed just for the hour. The slope choice was good a blue or a 'black' it was more of a steep red. We both... More

It is located at the Mall of the Emirates. First thing we did was the Penguin Encounter. Penguins were adorable and smart. After we went at the snowpark. Be sure to wear a jacket inside if you are not used of low temperature. They procide clothes and boots too.

I wanted to learn to Ski and bought the Power Package (Aed 300) which entitled me to learn to ski in one hour. Had great fun learning from the instructor (skiing down slope and braking) . Package also entitled to unlimited day stay inside ski Dubai (enjoying the chair lift and other rides). Money well spent

Ifyou're not into shopping, then while your other half shops you can ski. The runs aren't advanced by any means, but being completely artificial they aren't too bad. It's a bit of fun to kill the time and a great place to escape the dubai summer.

Great experience at Ski Dubai - and I don't ski or snowboard. Would recommend to all - very fun experience. Find the zorbing a little nausea inducing - so would consider doing this last to avoid the effects impacting your experience. Definitely pick the private penguin experience - that was really fun and cool. When in Dubai next will go... More

I'm not a great skier so this was a good fit for my skills and it was fun for the couple hours I was "on the slope". Equipment was good enough, staff was friendly, and I'm glad i did it. BTW - the expert side is probably a blue level run, but it's a touch shorter so better to go... More
