Area: Al Barsha, Dubai
It won’t come as a surprise to read that Ski Dubai is as big a hit with children as it is with adults. If they’re not yet ready for the main slopes at Ski Dubai, the Snow Park is a good bet, geared as it is towards children and the young at heart.
It’s fine to leave your kids here while you’re on the bigger slopes or elsewhere. That said, there are no specific child-minders on site, so while the older children are perfectly capable of entertaining themselves, it’s advisable to accompany younger kids. There are also ski lessons at Ski Dubai designed specially for children.
There’s a theatre showing children’s films, a snow cave and ice bar (great for hot chocolate), and the bobsleigh and tubing are highly recommended. The novelty value of heading straight from the desert heat into an icy clime is certainly a winner – Ski Dubai is one of the best family attractions in Dubai.
