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

Worth doing just for the unique value. Works well and very professional although you could probably get a ski pass in the Alps for the same price :-)

Ski Dubai was a big draw card for visiting Dubai, without which, we would not have stopped over for more than a night. And it was not to disappoint! 200 AED for 2hrs seems quite a lot to pay until you realise... You're skiing in a freaking mall! I've skied Canada and Switzerland and wasnt expecting much from this but... More

Ski Dubai is one of most recommended places in Dubai, I have been twice to this place, its more fun in high summer, when there is heat outside and you are inside and you are freezing inside, it has some excellent rides, the chair lift is most popular and universal type, even a simple walk through the place is fun....

I am not the best at skiing or snowboarding but get by. The staff here have no time for people who cannot ski and will ask you to leave if you are not confident and fall over often. They provide you will a suit, shoes and socks but you have to purchase hats and gloves seperate. It was really expensive... More

Snow will always be exciting for someone like me that came from a near equatorial area. I experienced playing with snow many times and it never cease to excite me. I been to Dubai like 5 times already and my visit to Ski Dubai was the third, one to experience the snow park and two to try skiing. Ski Dubai... More
