Ski Dubai
is claimed to be one of the largest indoor ski resorts in the world, with 22,500-square metres of indoor ski area. It is a part of the Mall of the Emirates, which is one of the largest malls in the world.

An extremly efficient insulation system is the key to maintain the temperature of -1 degrees Celsius during the day and -6 degrees during the night when the snow is produced.

Ski Dubai is part of the Majid Al Futtaim Group of Companies, a leader for Shopping Malls in the region. Ski Dubai has 5 runs of varying difficulties, the longest being 400m.

Some other facts:

  • 22,500m² covered with real snow all year round – (equivalent to 3 football fields).
  • 85 metres high (approximately 25 stories) and 80 metres wide.
  • Full capacity of 1500 guests.
