Relatively good for small kids who don't know how skiing, the rented boots are very poor quality and your feet will literally freeze!!, the jackets aren't better, so bring your own gear or freeze. Didn't like they try to get your money at any cost with the penguins...poor animals

Yes, skiing in the mall is totally acceptable. They have different packages to include different activities such as skiing, snowboarding, tobogganing and observing the penguins. They have restaurant and a hot chocolate stand inside. With the packages your basic equipment is included but this place gets crowded quickly. Go early or fairly late. Some might consider this to be a... More

One of the impossibles that Dubai has done. Snow in the desert. What more can you ask for from Dubai? There are a lot of things to do in Dubai ski aside from skiing...worth checking the money.

It is funny to be in an area where it's freezing, in a climate that is very hot! I went to Ski Dubai for the pinguing visit, which was very nice. For kids as well.

For those of you that have never experienced sub-zero temperatures or skiing, this is a perfect place for you and the family. For those who live in this type of climate go to the bottom of this review. Kids under 3 years of age are not permitted, kids under 13 are expected to wear helmets but they are not very... More

It is an unbelievable place. At times you tend to forget that you are in a dessert region. A fun activity for family. You get the costumes on rent so no problems with that. I took my aged parents with me. Though their activity was limited but still they enjoyed the chairlift etc. A must visit when in dubai

It is a once in a lifetime experience! It feels great to be able to ski and feel the cold in a desert! Unbelievable! Fun for all the family. A great place for kids to spend the day while mom is shopping!

First things first, the gloves provided are not high quality so carry your own waterproof gloves. Plus they do not provide any head protection from cold. So carry your own cap as well. It's pretty damn cold inside and the warmer you stay the more you enjoy. If you already know to Ski then you will love it all the... More
