Good fun, my son had his first experience with snowboard, not cheap but great fun and all part of the adventure. It is freezing so you need a couple of layers. And you can watch from the Mall or enjoy a coffee with a window seat view.

The idea is definitely amazing. Location is not so big, and if you want to ski you have just two lines. Very expensive to go in if you do not sky (about 60 euros per person to have access to all slides). Freezing inside (-5' about) so a sweater and a scarf are highly recommended. A nice experience.

Great thing to do in such a hot city! Staff were helpful and the facilities are top notch. Compared to what you pay in a natural resort this is fairly reasonable in price. The snow is a bit in on the icey side as opposed to powdery but not bad enough to ruin the experience. Make sure you bring your... More

A welcome break from the summer heat and a novelty to ski on real snow when it's 48 degrees outside. Lots of options including snow boarding, zorbing and just playing in the snow.

We thoroughly enjoyed our day. My kids had an awesome time. Beautiful all day experience with the family. It is advisable to buy extra gloves and socks as it is absolutely ice cold inside ski dubai. One almost feels that you are in a completely different place and not actually in a mall. Ski dubai is picturesque.It is really busy... More

We went to ski Dubai last week (snowpark tickets) and I was shocked at the lack of safety procedures by staff. The double tube ride that follows a path along the outside edge of the ski ramp is so badly surfaced I had to lift my body right out the tube to avoid a serious coccyx bone injury. The slide... More

We don't ski but went in for the experience, which we enjoyed thoroughly! Marveling at the enormity of the task and human feat, seeing locals in the characteristic head scarf ski, enjoying the ride on the ski lift and savoring the hot chocolate at the cafe that overlooks the ski piste was a really worth the visit! The cafe with... More
