United Arab Emirates
Got a few hours off and don't want to sit in the sun? Then go to the snow. You know that huge silver bit you see jetting off of the Mall Of The Emirates when you zoom past in a cab, well that my friends, is a ski slope, with real snow and everything. A great way to kill time, and get your practice in for your next visit to the slopes, is to go to Ski Dubai and spend an hour or two zipping your way down their real snow slopes. There are two runs, a fairly mild blue/red and a black (which is more red than anything else!) and plenty of space for beginners to learn on the nursery slope area. They provide all the kit except hats and socks… so bring some with you, even though it's weird putting them in the suitcase to visit the desert, or you can buy them there. Go get completely weirded out and go from 40 degrees to minus 2 in the space of a few footsteps.
Mall Of The Emerites
Ski Dubai is a newly-opened indoor ski resort located in the Mall of the Emirates. Skiing and snowboarding are available as well as as a ski school and snow park for children. Real snow, friendly instructors, and excellent fun! Equipment and clothes are provided (except gloves and hats). There are eskilators on the lower slope, and a proper ski lift to reach the higher slope(s). Restaurants and cafes overlooks the ski facility, and photographers capture your fear on film!
