In a recent trip to Dubai with my wife we pre-booked via email a Penguin experience which seemed quite odd to be leaving the searing heat of the summer to the freezing temperatures inside. Ski Dubai is located at one end of the Emirates mail so is quite easy to travel to by the Metro and find upon arrival at... More

We only had an hour so just did the snow park rather than skiing but tubing and the bobsled were fantastic! The staff were really friendly and fun. Although it was 45 degrees outside, it was not busy so we didn't have to queue for any of the rides. My children thought the penguin show was very entertaining. This is... More

For me it was nice experience. Close the desert you can go and ski inside, just pay ticket and you get everything what you need (clothes, shoes, skies). For me lift was too slow, but i think it is so slow, b´cause most of visitor are beginners. Slope isn´t so deep, so don´t worry if you are beginner, and of... More

Had a 2 day stopover in Dubai and wanted to escape the summer heat, so went for this. Being Australian, my son has never experienced this kind of "weather" and loved it! Italy here we come 😄. We had a fun time in the snow park and he kept going and going, never seeming to tire of the short rides.... More

My 15 year old daughter had never seen snow. So we paid to go in. What great fun we had! My daughter threw snowballs at me and thought that was the best thing! We stayed for about 2 hours before the cold got to us (especially going up the lift!) Well worth a visit. It's really weird to go into... More

Ski dubai is located in the mall of emirates. It has something for everyone of every skill level. Ski school for beginners and then the main slope. The main slope is about 350metres long which is amazing for a indoor ski slope. The snow is great quality. The price is 200dhs for a 2 hour pass or 300dhs for a... More

Ski Dubai was amazing and extreme! We have both been skiing before but were a little rusty when going to Ski Dubai. An instructor was very nice and helped us. I am pretty sure that there are skiing lessons and whatnot for anyone who isn't experienced. Be prepared for the cold! When you're outside in the overwhelming heat of Dubai... More
