Make your own way to Ski Dubai, the indoor ski complex in Dubai’s Mall of Emirates. This huge, state-of-the-art center consists of exciting ski slopes and runs, as well as chairlifts and a snowboarding zone.
Head inside with your ticket, put on your provided thermal jacket, pants, boots and socks; collect your supplied skis and poles, or a snowboard, and enter the impressive, snow-filled center. Then, feel the chill — the temperature is kept at around 30 degrees Fahrenheit (minus one degree Celsius) — and admire the artificial slopes and runs before you.
If you wish, get instruction from one of the expert ski or snowboard instructors and whenever you feel ready, take to the slopes. Choose from the five different beginner, intermediate and advanced slopes that reach a maximum of 1, 300 feet (400 meters) in height. Ride a chairlift up and then tackle your chosen runs, skiing back down through the soft snow.
Alternatively, if you’re snowboarding, enjoy the fantastic snowboard run and test your skills on the challenging jumps and rails of the fun Freestyle zone.
After two hours, take your leave and end your experience when you exit Ski Dubai.
Please note: Minimal skiing experience required to qualify as a beginner.
