Amazing to believe and feel -4 degrees of cold in the land of deserts. Hats off to the makers and financiers.

Ski Dubai is the first indoor ski resort in the Middle East and offers an amazing snow setting to enjoy skiing, snowboarding or just playing in the snow.

Right in the heart of the Mall of the Emirates it's easy to access and well connected to the Metro line.

You would be provided with winter clothes and boots. Lockers at reasonable price. Must go for kids who haven't had the experience of real snow ever!

So weird skiing indoors. It's not for you if your looking for the real alpine experience but a fun thing to do

We visited for a Penguin Encounter but also booked an impromptu beginners' snowboarding lesson upon arrival. They provide everything for you and the process is simple when it comes to getting your kit. The Penguin encounter was fun and the photos (extra cost) were good quality. Snowboarding on the beginner slope was great, the instructor was very enthusiastic and good to work with. It was worth doing this course simply to get inside the main slope area and get a look at this incredible feat of engineering!

I really like the experience and the penguins were so friendly.
It won't be the last visit. Next time I'll try skiing.
