The Dubai Ski Resort
Ok, so the topic of skiing on a Beach Holiday website is a little strange, but not only is it possible to go skiing on your sunny beach holiday, but you can also go skiing in Dubai on your beach holiday! Dubai continues to render me almost speechless as they have what is said to be the largest indoor ski resort in the world…and all in the middle of the desert!
The Ski resort in Dubai is so large that it has five different runs, all varying in difficulty and they have the world first indoor black run or you can trundle down a gentle slope, ideal for beginners and children. The longest ski run in Ski Dubai is 400 meters long and over 60 meters high. That is the length of 4 football fields!
Snowboarders are also catered for as there is a Freestyle Zone to practice stunts … flips and what ever else snowboarders get up to!
Family Fun in Dubai
Don’t worry if you have never skied before, don’t worry as every level of skier and snowboarder is welcome, as well as the skiing, your children and probably you will also enjoy the largest indoor snow park in the world, which at 3000 square meters is the largest indoor snow park in the world. Ski Dubai also have qualified professional instructors at hand should you need any help or tuition on learning to ski or snowboard.
Ski Dubai is a great way for you to drop off the kids (men included) in your family and head out to do some serious shopping in the most incredible shopping complex, as not only is the indoor ski resort in Dubai said to be the largest in the world, but it is also part of the Mall of the Emirates, which also just happens to be one of, if not the largest shopping complexes in the world!
Ski Clothing & Equipment
Besides from looking a little strange carrying skiing equipment and clothing onto a flight to Dubai, it is also heavy and bulky. Don’t worry, Ski Dubai has winter clothing, ski and snowboard equipment all available at the resort.
Apart from the skiing, there are also two restaurants within the Dubai Ski center: One called the Avalanch Cafe is halfway down with excellent views of the slope.
