Ski Dubai at Mall of the Emirates

If you find the heat of the Dubai desert a little too hard to bear, and a swim in the Persian Gulf of your Jumeirah Beach hotel not cooling you enough, head over to the Mall of the Emirates shopping centre where you can Ski Dubai.

  2. Unbelievable!! :-)

  3. It’s amazing that this has been built in a shopping centre!
    Great for the older children whilst you go shopping!!

  4. You’ve gotta the UAE for all of their crazy fun projects. I’ve seen this indoor ski thing (while sitting on the otherside of the glass in the warm restaurant that overlooks it with a cocktail in hand, rather than strapping on my skis and taking to the slopes) :) Did you get over to Abu Dhabi while there? They have a mall there where it regularly rains inside the mall….cracks me up!

  5. Crazy! I think I heard this existed but never really believed it was true – just showed the hubby the photos and he’s set on going, lol..We’ll have to do a comparison between skiing France & Dubai!
