Ski down a snowy mountain, in a shopping mall, in the desert!
In a country where temperatures can soar to over 40 degrees, skiing and snowboarding are perhaps the last activities you would expect to find... but this is Dubai and anything is possible.
Our guide to Ski Dubai
Ski Dubai is a wonderfully unique winter wonderland built on desert sands. The amazing real snow setting covers an area equivalent to three football pitches and comprises green, blue, red and black runs, chairlifts and snow patrols - just like any other ski resort.
The runs vary in difficulty, height and steepness, catering for everyone from the novice skier and snowboarder to the snow sport enthusiast. Here, you can test your abilities on the world’s first indoor black run or practice your turns on the gentle nursery slopes.
Snowboarders can also perfect their stunts on the 90-metre long quarter pipe. A brief respite from the slopes can be enjoyed at the St Moritz Café or the Avalanche Café at mid-station, with views of the slope.
There are 3 great tickets to choose from:
- Ski Dubai Super Pass - Dive into the fun at Ski Dubai with an all-day Super Pass that offers a combination of winter activities including toboggan runs, zorbing and bobsled rides. Pelt your family and friends in the snowball throwing gallery, build a snow man and enjoy the snow cavern filled with interactive experiences and amazing sights and sounds.
- Ski Dubai Slope Pass - Tickets include admission to Ski Dubai and two hours of unlimited skiing or snowboarding on the five exhilarating ski runs. There is no need to worry about clothing or ski/snowboarding equipment as skis or snowboard, ski/snowboard boots, poles, jacket, trousers, disposable socks and helmet for children are provided. Although Ski Dubai welcomes skiers and snowboarders of all levels, there is a minimum skill requirement for use of the recreational slope. This includes stopping safely, speed control, linked turns and ability to use the lifts. Ski Dubai reserves the right to ask any guest to leave the slope if the guest is deemed unable to meet the minimum skill requirements.
- Ski Dubai Penguin Encounter - Meet the penguins during the “Snow Penguins at Ski Dubai” show that introduces the park’s colony of Gentoo and King Penguins! See the magnificent penguins running and playing in the snow! During this 40-minute encounter you’ll have the opportunity to experience an exclusive interaction with these remarkable birds.
Ski Dubai is located at the Mall Of the Emirates.
