“Good Place For The Family”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

Ski Dubai is wonderful place to visit with your family. It has fun activity for every members of the family irrespective of their age. Be sure to go with you own camera because those taken by the staff there are quite expensive. The Bubble and the sliding bucket were very popular with my children. The Ramp is also good activity for the whole family not for the faint hearted though. Adults should be sure bring along a head warmer if you plan to stay more two hours because it can be quite cold.
Generally,Ski Dubai is a wonderful place for good family outing.

“Very Good!”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

Very spacious, and good value for money.
They have chair lifts as opposed to drag lifts which is great!
I visited there during Ramadan and pretty much had the place for myself! They had a special offer on which made it even cheaper for me.
Make sure you get your gloves as they don't hire them.

“Amazing Experience”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

Who could have imagined to be skiing in a mall on a hot day indoors? It felt like skiing in Switzerland. It was even snowing. Remember to grab a hot chocolate at the end!

“Great experience, excellent value”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

This was a really great way of spending an afternoon in Dubai and for once, something that wasn't overpriced and over-rated.

All very efficient, the kit itself is a bit old, you need to make sure you have warm underclothes on if you're going to spend any period of time on the slopes as the coat and ski trousers they provide are not very warm. Also, there's no gloves provided (which is contrary to their website), though ski socks were.

The 400m run was practically empty when we went and plenty steep enough to do some proper practising.

My only complaints were that the lifts were a bit slow and that they didn't provide helmets as standard - there were certainly potential to build up some serious speed from the top of the slope.

“Excellent, no value”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

Ski dubai is a nice place to visit, but if you go there, you are always overpriced. I am glad i did not have to bring my winter gear, because they give the gear to you.
