The Ultimate Skiing Experience in Dubai
Even though the only skiing resort in the Middle East is located in the desert, it has all the right ski conditions for a true, real life ski experience that you don’t want to miss out on. It has 5 runs, which cater for all levels and vary in height and gradient. The longest run in the complex is 400 metres with a 60 metre fall, which provides a real test for ski professionals - even though you don’t get quite the champagne powder as you would on a real slope.
The snow can get a bit sticky so you’ll need to make extra effort to gain speed and make perfect turns. There is also a freestyle zone where snowboarders can show off their new skills and tricks.
Beginners and novices can test their skills on easier slopes and baby slopes. First time skiers will need to take lessons before tackling any slope and it’s advised highly that you book these early in advance.
For an extraordinary ski and snowboard experience, you have to try out the super fun at the Snow Park – the largest snow park in the world at 3,000 square metres.
The gloves are off! Time for some #hotchocolate! @nathe880 #skidubai #dubai #mydubai #malloftheemirates #uae #fun #family #friends #slope #snow #ski #snowboard #chairlift #skiresort
