Ski Dubai

Posted by

Ski Dubai are gigantic halls in Dubai, where you can ski in the middle of the hot desert. In addition, there are facilities for other winter sports, such as a bobsled track, a sled track and a half pipe. In another part of Ski Dubai live penguins. The whole complex has an incredible area: well over 2 hectares of land covered with snow and ice.

There are 5 slopes for skiers from beginner to advanced. Much more than 1000 people can ski at the same time in Ski Dubai. In the hall is always a temperature of about – 1 degree, while outside is often over 40 degrees. Since in the desert hardly anyone has skis with them, visitors are provided with everything, sports equipment such as skis, snowboards, sleds or bobsleds, as well as clothing for the winter.

The ski slopes are right in the city of Dubai in one of the largest shopping malls in the world called Mall of the Emirates. Ski Dubai is easily accessible by metro (subway).
