Well worth a visit. It's 43 degrees outside and minus 4 in Ski Dubai. We sat and watched for ages and there are lots of activities to do inside including a decending ball and normal skiing too.

Ski Dubai is just another reason to love visiting or living in Dubai, wonderful fun and for a family that loves to ski together it provides an invaluable and inexpensive (relatively speaking) opportunity to practice and enjoy the sport together. It is with a somewhat perverse joy that our son now participates in Ski School once a week as part... More

Even though they provide some basic clothing, if you belong to India or similar tropical countries, you may find it really really cold. Just like I did :) There provision for Hot choclate although we couldnt... More

To go there you should buy a hat for your head and extra socks its so cold. Remember it will cost you to enjoy it 300 something UAE Derham and to buy hot drink inside the place and some photos so all trip will coast you more than 250 USD.

Amazing experience within the mall. Enjoyed the day very much. I was able to experience skiing for the first time and thanks to a good trainer I was able to pass the adventure stage of the ski lesson. I would like to mention Jamie who was the trainer who made the experience very enjoyable.

There are a lot of activities here for all ages - skiing, après, penguin encounter, sledging, toboggans etc. We visited at around 8:30-10:30pm and at the start it was very very busy. I would recommend using the button lifts rather than the chairlifts. The button lifts however were badly designed as they would get stuck and would not be released... More

Though the tickets are bit overpriced but you should go there at least once, especially if you have kids they will definitely enjoy there.
