Just because it does not snow outside in the UAE does not mean you will never have an opportunity to experience what snow feels like. The feel of the cold, white snow, creating your own snowman topped with sliding down slopes could be one of the most enjoyable things to do. TicketsToDo presents to you Ski Dubai, the largest indoor ski resort in the UAE.
About Ski Dubai
Boasting 22,500 square meters of the indoor ski area, Ski Dubai is the first indoor ski resort in Dubai. Based in the Mall of Emirates, it offers exceptional snow quality all year round. Opened in November 2005, it is the third-largest indoor ski slope in the world. The indoor resort features an 85-meter high indoor mountain with 5 slopes of varying steepness and difficulty, including a 400-meter-long run. The entire slope is covered with at least three feet of snow, generated with patented snowmakers that mimic the natural process of snowfall. The snowmakers deliver real, high-quality snowflakes to the slope and surrounding areas. The left-hand side of the slope is mainly a straight run designed for professional snow activities. It is the most ideal place to be in if you are somebody who loves snow and thrilling activities or if you want to experience what it feels like to be in a cold region.

Perks of Skiing
Not only is skiing a fun activity, but it is also a beneficial exercise. Skiing works the core muscle groups of your body. It also helps you improve your balance, posture and body strength. Skiing can give you a full-body workout. Although Ski Dubai is artificially made, it can still give you the amazing feel of a real mountain area. There’s no better feeling than gazing down at the white slope and jumping straight into it, enjoying every twist and turn until you get to the bottom, ready for another go!
You can engage in activities like skiing, snowboarding, snowballing and tobogganing too. The Snow Park has slopes for skiers and snowboarders. If you have the skills, then hit the floor and go sloping! Also, there are a number of other thrilling rides. But, wait for it, the best and most attractive part about Ski Dubai is that it is home to a number of penguins who are let out of their enclosures several times a day. This kind of feature is unique and rarely available at other indoor ski parks. Penguins are amusing creatures that we don’t get to see in our normal lives. So here’s your chance to encounter a penguin/s in an area made especially for them. Penguin encounters can be booked prior, allowing the visitors to interact directly with the penguins for about 40 minutes.
What to Expect
Enjoy a full day fun at Ski Dubai and indulge in many winter activities with your friends and family. There are many activities here for children as well as adults. The 4,500 square meter Snow Park gives you the chance to go sledding and tobogganing or climb towers. You can also explore a beautiful indoor ice cave. The Snow Bullet ride lets you suspend yourself 16 feet above the ground. A dual indoor zip line gives thrill-seekers the ride of their lives as they race against friends above this snowy indoor landscape. Also, a 40-minute encounter with the Gentoo and King Penguins will treat you to a unique experience. You will have the opportunity to experience an exclusive interaction with these remarkable birds.
