Ski in Dubai? Yes, you read it correctly. While you may be able to fry an egg on your car bonnet outside, there’s nothing stopping you from remaining cool as ice in Ski Dubai, the world’s largest Snow Park (22,500 square metres). Hop on the chair or button lift to take you up to the top, and choose from four runs, including the first ever indoor black run. You could also stop on your way down at Avalanche Café and sample delicious hot chocolate and crepes.
At Ski Dubai, there are classes for skiers of all levels, and you can hone your skills on the Monday Freestyle and Thursday Slalom nights. Weekends and holidays are packed at Ski Dubai - skiing is one of the most popular Dubai sports.
