“Just Amazing”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

The Ski Dubai is situated inside "The Mall of the Emirates". I don't have enough words to explain how amazing this place is. It was the first time I ever saw snow in my life and what a place to see it in Dubai. Although its quiet pricey, its well worth it. My only advice to potential tourists would be to avoid touching the ice with the free gloves that they provide because the gloves cannot sustain the heat for too long and you'll be forced to come out. This advice is more for people with kids as they get very excited and want to touch the snow. Otherwise this place is great for both adults and kids.

“Saw from a distance”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

The Ski Dubai is inside the Emirates Mall so we just saw it through the glass windows. Looked amazing, with chair lift, ski slopes and all kinds of fun stuff going in. Great for the kids.

“Amazing Activity in a Desert Setting!”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

When visiting The Mall of the Emirates, don't miss going to see the indoor ski slope or if you want, you can experience it first hand. The Metro goes to the Emirates Mall. In the mall, just near the ski slope, there is a great restaurant called 'The Cheesecake Factory'. This restaurant has an extensive meal menu & a great range of cheesecakes. One of the workers even took us on a tour of the restaurant, when we were checking it out. You can even sit at the window which is beside the part of the ski slope where the ball ride is located. This makes for an exciting meal, as the balls head straight for the window. No danger of course, just a few moments of stress at the beginning of your meal until you realise you are quite safe. Food, fun, excitement & cheesecake! Can't get much better than this! Have fun, near the snow, in the desert, while eating dessert!

“Nice for the kids”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

Ski Dubai is nice for kids( and those who still think they are). In the Mall of Emirates, you would never think you were in the middle of a shopping mall in the heat. Ski slopes were great and for Dhs200 you can rent all the gear needed and make use of the ski lift. Very enjoyable
