Top sights in 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.
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!
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!
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!
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!
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!
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
It should be clear that Top of the sky on-line booking is then to convert into a real ticket which is to do in advance and does not avoid the file. The meeting point "West Marina" for the Palm Cruise is confusing due to the Marina which is bigger than the Palm Marina. A more precise contact and place should be given. No problem at all with Alpha Tour for the desert safari.
It was a very sweet experience. First, we met smaller penguins, unfortunately we couldn't touch them, but they made pictures of us with them. Later met with bigger ones, we can really touch, hug, kissed them. They were very very soft. They made alot of pictures you and the penguins. You can buy these photos for 150 dirhams/piece at leaving.
All the staff were helpful and friendly and spoke good English. I wish I had worn more clothes because the jacket provided was paper thin. At -4C I can ski with just a t-shirt under my own ski jacket but not your jackets. A good slope to learn on.
I visited with my grandson, he is 15, he enjoyed it as much as me. The staff were really friendly and informative. We were in a small group with 2 families with small children, their reactions were a pure delight. Never to old to be young again.
Enjoyed meeting the penguins. Their web site says it's a 40 minutes encounter, but you only get to see them for about 5-10 minutes. You get to touch one while the photos are being taken, less than 3 minutes.
