We have visited Mall Of Emirates for shopping and wondered to find Dubai Skie beautifully constructed with cold temperature below freezing point. Inside skie you can find ice covered with lawn upto 500 Metres. It great to enjoy with family and friends. Should visit once.

We came to view the Penguins and they were a blast. But with the ticket price you get to go into ski part. Which was fun to watch all the family having a great time.

Too small but It was good experience.. Snow Penguin pass was not worth it, they just allow to seat next to penguin just so they can take 120 AED picture for you with penguin !! and the stuff were very rude.

Visited a friend who doesn't ski, but I had to do it! Was kitted out with warm jacket, salopettes style trousers and some socks (which were more like aeroplane socks but did the trick)! You DO NOT get gloves and I would advise you to bring them. Service of getting skis was very efficient, you step on to electronic scales... More

Staff were very helpful and willing to assist us have the best options for the family. Instructions and directions were easy to follow and clear. The experience was great especially since we're were in Dubai during the hottest months. We were able to take lovely pictures

How many places around the world have an indoor snow park with real snow? I can tell you not much. Ski Dubai is a must visit. Especially if you are not from town, you can show of the next time someone asks you what have you experienced in Dubai and you can say " I've been to an indoor Ski... More

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
