“A ski resort inside of the mall!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2013

It is 35C degrees outside, but Dubai Ski inside of mall of Emirates has -6C. It is amazing how much Emirates build and how vast is their imagination!
The ski Dubai can be seen through the window..if you are not into skiing, iceskating, or freezing yourself for an entrance fee. When we were there I saw a lot of children, and mostly adults supervising them.
You can rent all,the winter equipment, and purchase the necessary clothes if you will. They have slopes there and a lift.Overall pretty impressive for an outdoor ski place.

“So much fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2013

Amazing that there is a ski run, blue, inside a mall! There are other activities such as sledding, tobogganing and rolling down hills in a giant ball. Also, there is the penguin adventure where you actually get to pet live penguins, and learn more about them. It is the only place in the world that you are able to do this. An adventure not to be forgotten!

I thought I was in real snow on a real slope. If you could make it to a real slope this would be the next best thing, everyone was freindly patience and fun.

“Good visit even if just for a couple of hours”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

USD prices are about $55 for a 2-hour pass or $82 for an all-day pass. We used the 2-hour pass and it was worth it for a quick visit. They provide all clothing and gear EXCEPT gloves. Bring your own gloves or you will have to buy some. You can buy a cheap pair ($22) if needed. Fun for kids and adults.
