If you visit Dubai and are a keen skier this is not to be missed. Spent around 1hr on the slope which felt enough and got more than 10runs in. Try to go on a Sunday morning as this is a very quite time of the day. The chair lift is a little slow however.

Understanding that you are skiing in a mall, in a desert, it was a great experience. Staff was fast to provide ski clothes, and equipment. Once on the slopes, we pretty much had the place to ourselves, never having to wait more than 30 seconds to get on the chair lift. They have a 2 hour option and a full... More

A great way to cool off and have some fun. You can get all needed gear there. It wasn't too crowded much to my surprise. Those that do not wish to ski can watch thru the windows. A great mall worth strolling around too.

It is big and made good. Located at Mall of emirates. But there is not much you can do if you are an adult and do not know professional ski boarding or skiing. It costs about AED 200 for a super pass which has all except penguin adventure and Skiing. Power pass is another AED 50 extra which has touching... More

Although there in 2011, this was some of the best value for money of our whole trip. We'd seen Pisa, Rome, Pompeii, Venice, Paris, Berlin, Munich and parts of the North Sea. A stop in Dubai was spent in part Skiing in the Desert and the operators think of everything. Great value, great fun and everything supplied for the equivalent... More

Very well organised and easy to access. The kids had a great time in the Snow Park. Don't need to bring anything as it is all catered for you, including ski gear. Must do when in Dubai.

Met some friends and had a great time skiing for 2 hrs at ski dubai. Not too busy. Took my own ski jacket and trousers as my friend had said the jackets supplied don't keep you warm enough.. Surreal being in -4 temperature yet it's 40+ outside. Would definitely return.. Ok it's not the Alps but it's the nearest thing... More
