Ski Dubai: a winter wonderland in the Middle East

Ski Dubai is the first of its kind in the Middle East and the world’s largest indoor ski park. Offering a change of scenery from the city’s desert nature, this ski center offers year-round winter fun and a temperature of -1oC. For beginners this is a great introduction to skiing or snowboarding in a safe indoor environment. Qualified instructors are available to give lessons. If you are an experienced skier, then you can choose from five runs. The center even contains the world’s first indoor black run. The longest slope available is 400 meters. Check out the freestyle zone if you wish to perfect your tricks and jumps. When it is time for a rest enjoy a tasty and warming hot chocolate or soup at the Avalanche Café, sit on the terrace, and watch other skiers go by.

Ride the Snow Bullet

There is more to this facility than skiing. Make sure you ride the 150 meter long zip line, the Snow Bullet. This is a favorite with kids and adults alike. If you are competitive, you can race your friends as you fly up to 16 meters above the ground.

March of the Penguins

Perhaps not what you would expect to find in a ski facility, but the Snow Penguins are a big hit here. Both King and Gentoo Penguins live here and march daily for everyone to see. For a more detailed encounter, you can book one of three packages, which offer you the opportunity for an up-close encounter where you can learn all about these magnificent birds. The Ultimate Peng-Friend Encounter ticket also includes access to the snow park.

All of this adventure is just 500 meters from the Park Inn by Radisson Hotel Apartments. Ski Dubai is part of The Playmania, a larger entertainment complex located inside the Mall of the Emirates. It is the perfect place to combine entertainment with some shopping.
