Ski Dubai: Year-Round Winter Playground in the Desert
Chill out with your family at the coolest destination on your Dubai holiday; enjoy winter sports such as skiing, snowboarding, and tobogganing at Ski Dubai.
Enjoy real snow all year-round at this mountain-themed resort and glide through the slopes. Stay at the beginner’s slope if you’re just getting started with skiing, or hire a qualified professional instructor and tackle slopes with increasing difficulty, height, and gradient.
Go snowboarding on the 400-metre-long run, or brush up on your stunts at the Freestyle Zone, featuring jumps and rails that are always changing. Have a fun time sliding down with your kids on the toboggan, which can accommodate one or more people and vary from rubber tubes to moulded plastic designs.
If snow isn’t your thing, go hiking instead, and explore the 3,000-square metre Snow Park, which features a view of the Mall of the Emirates where the ski resort is located, as well as a snow cavern. There’s also an observation tower that overlooks the resort’s main slope.
St. Moritz Café offers superb international cuisine -- including char-grilled lamb chops, The Lodge flame burger, and chilled Cajun salmon steak salad -- in a cosy, mountain lodge setting overlooking the snow park. If you get hungry out in the snow, you can always stop at the Avalanche Café for some soup, sandwiches, and sweets. Sip some hot chocolate on its outdoor terrace while you watch the “action on the slopes.”
