Ski Dubai, UAE

ski hotels

One of the largest indoor ski resorts in the world, the 22,500 square metres large Ski Dubai is part of one of the largest shopping malls in the world, the Mall of Emirates and is in amongst lots of Dubai restaurants that overlook the ski slopes.

To reach this ski area, visitors may arrive via the Dubai International Airport and then take a taxi to the Mall of Emirates. Accommodations are plenty in the city of Dubai.

This ski resort opened its doors in November 2005 and has been a popular attraction since then. The “mountain” is 85 metres high with 5 slopes of varying levels of difficulty.  A 400 metre run is rated at Expert level, the first indoor black run in the world.

There is a 90 metre long quarter pipe for snowboarders. Two lifts including a Quad lift and a tow lift carry skiers and snowboarders to the top of the slopes. Adjacent to this ski mountain is a 3000 sq metre Snow park which is popular with the younger crowd for its sled and toboggan runs along with icy body slide. Additionally this area has climbing towers, ice cave, snowball shooting gallery and a 3D theatre.

This facility consumes about 3000 gallons of oil a day with an exceptionally efficient insulation arrangement that helps to maintain the temperature of -1˚C during the day and -6˚C when the artificial snow is produced.
