Who would’ve thought you could hit the slopes in the middle of the desert? Well, in Dubai, nothing’s impossible. Nestled inside the bustling Mall of the Emirates, Ski Dubai is where the desert heat meets winter wonder.
Spot it easily – it’s the slanted building sitting pretty on top of the mall. Surrounded by cute chalets and restaurants, imagine sliding down snowy slopes while shoppers stroll by in the surrounding windows.
Chill with Penguins and more
Ski Dubai isn’t just any indoor activity; it’s a snowy paradise in the heart of Dubai. Hang out with the Ski Dubai penguins, craft a snowman, roll down the hills, or ride the Twin Track Bobsled. Feeling adventurous? Zip-line through the frozen wonder or take the classic chairlift to the hilltop, ready to ski all the way down.
Experience real snow and winter vibes all year round – inside a shopping haven. After all the frosty fun, refuel at the mall’s dining spots, from Din Tai Fung to Tribes, or catch a blockbuster at VOX Cinemas.
