Ski Dubai: Tours & Tickets
Top 5 facts about Ski Dubai
Situated in the Mall of the Emirates is one of Dubai's most popular – and surprising – attractions. With a skiing area of 22,500 m², it isn't quite the largest in the world, but it's by far the most luxurious! Here are a few things to know before your visit.
1. It boasts the world's first indoor black run
That term comes from the black lines that used to mark out the steepest, most challenging pistes on a ski map. If you didn't already know that, then it'd be best to avoid this one!
2. There's plenty for beginners to enjoy too
If the black run sounds too scary, fear not! The 85-meter high artificial mountain offers five slopes up to 400 meters. Whatever your skill level, you'll find something to enjoy!
3. It's the coolest part of Dubai
Need a break from Dubai's sweltering heat? Its indoor ski slopes are kept between -4°C and -6°C. Ski wear is included in the price but you might want to bring a woolly hat!
4. The snow is artificially produced but otherwise real
Chilled water is shot out through ceiling snow cannons every evening. As with winter rain, the water rapidly crystallizes once it's been exposed to the freezing temperatures!
5. There are penguins
Yes, you heard correctly: penguins. They're released from the enclosure several times a day, but if you want to meet them personally, then you'll have to book tickets in advance!
Planning Your Visit
Can anyone ski?
Visitors must meet certain requirements in order to ski alone. The minimum means being able to make turns, stop, and use a chairlift. Absolute beginners can still ski if they book a lesson in advance, or can simply enjoy the bobsled, toboggan, and zipline runs. Also, did we mention the penguins?

What people are saying about Ski Dubai
The experience was cool But when I got there they knew nothing about my paid appointment saying they had not approved this or confirmed this appointment which is so bad on your side as you took my money and never mentioned that ski dubai had to confirm. Fortunately after some arguing they let us in. Sad we had this start because of your company.
From start to finish everyone was so helpful in what I needed to do ...the penguins were a delight to watch and even better when you can stroke their feathers .only down side photos were very expensive 150 dirhams is slightly expensive especially as you can only choose 1 photo out of all the ones you have taken
Nagyon jó élmény volt. 3 pingvinnel találkozhattunk személyesen. Jól felépített és szervezett program. Minden öltözéket kaptunk, kivéve sapka. Szóval sapkát vigyetek! És az külön jó volt, hogy a pingvines jeggyel a bemehettünk a hóparkba is. Szuper volt!
It was outstanding. Everything was well organized. Me and my family enjoyed maximum specially the penguin parade in the evening. We are surprised that Dubai could arrange a ice park in a middle of desert. Just Superb.... Wish to come again...
The good The experience was fun having the chance to touch and see real pinguins. The bad Photos are expensive 150 dirhams for one. At least the could give free complementary photo.
