As it turns out, you can find real snow even among the sands of Arabian Desert. Participate in traditional winter amusements at the Ski Dubai.
Would you like a breath of fresh freezing air, when it is fifty degrees in the shade outdoors? This is hard to believe, but you can find yourself among the snow and even take a ski ride in the UAE. This is why Ski Dubai, the first indoor ski resort in the Middle East, was set up.
When you enter the resort, you can even forget about the desert outdoors. The inside temperature is maintained in the range from two to six degrees Celsius below zero. Slides for snowboarding, pistes for various skill levels, chairlifts, snow banks up to 70 centimeters high are everywhere. Cloudy winter skies are above. This is the effect produced by the unique design of the roof, which is 85 meter high.
At the entrance, you will be offered warm clothes and required sports equipment: all these are included in the cost of visiting the ski resort. Once fully equipped, you can go riding the snowy tops of the steepest slides in Ski Dubai.
