Queues Queues Queues
Skiing is good, the rest "so so"
Great for younger children
Queues though and pushing in.....Perhaps it's a cultural thing

“Unique winter experience in the middle of the desert!”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

We had a great time with our 5- and 8-year olds. The kids started with some lessons. And as we were all beginners, the slopes took a couple of runs to get used to. Otherwise it suited well to our minimum skill level. You should budget 30-60mins to gather and put on all of your gears (shoes, clothing, skis). The buy one get one free deal from the coupon books made this a great value!

“snow in Dubai - you must be crazy !”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

Dubai has everything you could possibly want - including snow skiing and a snow park. It is quite expensive but what a novelty ! You will get bored pretty quickly if you are a really good skier but for novice's, children and beginners it is great fun. Try to go early morning or on a week day if you can as the weekends ( Fridays and Saturdays are hectic ! )

Ski dubai has 3 main slopes. beginner where they give you lessons . Then there is intermediate and then the black diamond expert slope. although im not a regular skiier but i felt the experience to be just like the outdoors. The layout of the area, chair lifts, slopes all provide for a very fun filled experience. The equipment is well maintained the staff is super trained they help you if your a newbie right from putting on your gear to shoes to skis. If you are a beginner the highly trained instructors are very helpfull and provide for an amazing learning experience. The slopes are well monitored and maintained with dozens of instructors at your disposal. If you are not there for skiing or snowboarding then there is tubing as well as zorbing. Apart from the activities ther is a penguin show and you can just enjoy the snowy experience. I would recommend ski dubai to everyone to all the tourists who are visiting dubai for recreation

“Great place to visit”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

One of the best attractions in Dubai. Snow in the desert. A wonderfully made place near Mall of Emirates and a must visit attraction. With lot of attractions like the giant ball and numerous slides and a charlift to the top of the huge snowscape. A good place for entertainmemt for both adults and kids. The penguin show was an added attraction which came at the end of our visit there. It was really wonderful.
