Another item checked off the Bucket List! Certainly not the skiing I am accustomed to in Colorado but quite the experience regardless. And they made it effortless. Easy to get suited up and get equipment. Lines were short, lockers near by, lots of attendants to help. Not much by way of slopes but so much fun to play on. And... More

Go to the snow, even the outdoors +40. This is a truly amazing experience that is worth experiencing. Ski Dubai is located inside the Mall of the Emirates, together with many other facilities to be visited, such as the Ice cafe.

I visited during a business trip to Dubai and was pleasantly surprised. Compared to the indoor slopes I have been to in England this was superb. There are two main slopes which they describe as a 'black' and a 'red'. In reality they are both blues - the 'black' does have one tricky section. The 'red' can also be accessed... More

I visited Ski Dubai many times, I am very excited, when you think about it is amazing to have Ice Ski here in the Middle East considering originally the area is considered previously a desert. Now we can enjoy skiing, snowboarding for beginners and intermediate skier. The resort is a fantastic to escape the heat of the outside..This an experience... More

Dubai is really a case in what can be achieved by money power. To have a large snow park and ski slope in the middle of a mall in a desert nation is unbelievable. The snow park is great fun, has a couple of interesting rides and slopes inside. All equipment is available at the venue, and if you know... More

Ski Dubai was just okay for me.. It would have been much better if i didn't have a long day before going there or if I knew how to ski!!. It's quite fun though especially with a group of friends. The in-house photographers are expensive though so be sure to carry your cameras along. I made frequent stops to buy... More

If you like to ski then I'm sure there will be a suitable package at a rate that suits your budget. If, like us, you want to go in as a novelty for your children being in a cold environment when it is so hot outside it's not worth it. Previously you could pay a nominal fee to go in,... More

I did not enter this place. I just saw it through the windows. It is an offense to the planet and so to us and our children who are and will suffer so much from the damage that that kind of things create to the environment. It is not good also for us: what do we want to teach to... More

The price includes equipment and clothing rental but not gloves. I bought a 2 hr pass. I ski well and was not planning to enter but decided to do it just for novelty and picture value. It is a well run operation. The lifts snow and run length were actually better than expected and better than the small hill where... More
