It's hard to believe that the first time I ever went skiing was in the desert. This indoor ski slope was definitely an eye opener as to what can be done with willpower and money. There is a snowy play park for the kids, snow tubing and ski or snowboard lessons for those of us who have no idea what we're doing. For those that do, there are 700m worth of slopes with varying degrees of difficulty. Worst thing about the place is the transition from 50 degrees Celsius outside to - 4 inside. Chilli.

I went to see what the mall offered and also what they had built to show the ski slopes. I have a ski lodge at Mt Buller in Victoria and enjoy skiing for many years. This was an experience and I was very surprised that they had built a ski slope, toboggan run indoors. All the clothes could be hired and I every thing was of the highest quality. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and it was so cold after the heat of Dubai. Everyone with a family would have a great time.

Being from Europe and visiting Dubai during the very hot summer the least to expect that we can have a fun day with the family in the snow. It was a truly unique experience to ski during the early afternoon and finish the day at our hotel next door at the pool with over 30 degrees. Very friendly staff at the equipment rental! we'll be back for sure!
