It was our first time to snowboard and we really had fun here. We were the only beginners during our scheduled lesson so we were lucky to have a private instructor (who was Filipino too) :) Tip: Bring your own ski hat/gloves or buy the cheap ski dubai gloves in the ski shop.

When we went to Dubai, it was the start of the Summer in Dubai, and we could already feel the pinch every time we stepped out to any non air conditioned area. Ski Dubai was a complete surprise package amid the sweltering heat that we were experiencing. They maintain a temperature of 2 to 3 degrees Celsius.. and outside its... More

Amazing place. In the middle of the heat of Dubai there is this magic place called Ski Dubai. Girlfriend and I were keen to do the fun park but it was full of kids running around so we went for the Penguin Encounter which was at a good price. We had to book a session time then get our snow... More

Ski Dubai is as good as it gets for an indoor snow arena. It's runs are long enough to enjoy. Get there early to beat the crowds.

Temperature inside is -4°C. We did all kind of activities and liked all. But it's good to spend time only skiing because the rest of attractions is not enough attractive for adults. Snow looks like real, that's amazing. You can see penguins in park there. Better to bring your winter scarves, sweaters and hats. 🏂🎿❄

My buddy and I just randomly decided to go snowboarding after work one day. One of the best days ever! I would consider myself a tough guy but I was scared to death on that slope. It took me an hour just to work up the courage to go down the beginner slope. I wouldn't even try the top. NO... More

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
