Temperature in Dubai rising? Go Skiing

Dubai is known to offer unforgettable and unique experiences that challenge the ordinary. This includes a ski slope in the middle of the desert! So, if you’re planning to visit Dubai during the warm summer months and wish to cool off or want to try something new and adventurous, Ski Dubai is exactly the kind of thrilling experience you need.

Get your adrenaline pumping and glide in 22,500 square meters of fresh snow at Ski Dubai, an indoor ski resort located in Mall of the Emirates. It’s also Middle East’s first indoor ski resort featuring a host of fun activities including a snow park, chairlift and play time with the penguins. So, if you are visiting Dubai, what can you expect to see at Ski Dubai?

Does it match my level?

A great thing about Ski Dubai is that it includes a slope and skiing experience to suit every level. Whether you’re an experienced skier or a beginner, there’s something to keep all levels enticed. Here, you’ll discover five runs that vary in difficulty, height, and gradient (the longest run is 400 meters with a fall of over 60 meters). And, if you really have no clue on how to ski, but still want to try your hand at it, there are special classes you can take to help you get started.

Not big on skiing?

Maybe skiing might not be your thing but, what about snowboarding? At Ski Dubai, discover the perfect place to go snowboarding all year round. Snowboarders should keep an eye out for the 400-meter run and a special Freestyle Zone with exciting jumps and rails to suit their snowboarding style.

Other adventures waiting for you at Ski Dubai include the Snow Bullet (world’s first indoor sub-zero zip line), wall climbing, tubing and bobsled amongst others.

Less thrilling more relaxing?

While some of you might be looking for thrilling activities, others might just want to relax and cool off. Fortunately, Ski Dubai caters to all your requirements, including keeping your kids entertained. While you’re there, enjoy a ride and the view on the Chairlift, meet snow penguins, have a snow fight at the snow park or just enjoy a hot cup of hot chocolate at the Avalanche Cafe.

What else do I need to know?

If you have time, book your passes online before going. This way you can skip the queue and won’t be disappointed with any setbacks. Make sure you pick the right experience/package to get the most out of your time and money’s worth. The prices can be a bit expensive especially if you’re taking the whole family along, but to reduce costs check for offers on the website before booking. Sometimes, you can get lucky with special seasonal discounts. Lastly, remember if you’re visiting during the weekend (Friday and Saturday), expect a crowd in the mall and account for any time delay. Happy skiing!
