It’s not always the snow season. But does that mean you won’t ski or snowboard? Dubai does the impossible! Thanks to its state-of-the-art technology and innovative engineering, it has created the snow-capped hill station in the middle of the desert. Closest to the natural skiing you can ever get in a city that experiences an average temperature of the high 20s (in Celsius), even in winter, is indoor skiing at Ski Dubai.
Indoor skiing is gaining huge popularity — it includes a hangar-sized complex, artificial slope, different runs, climate control, and machine-made snow. Ski Dubai takes it up a notch with a below-zero climate and pleasing atmosphere.

Also, they perform live shows just for the audience to be enthralled and entertained. It is spellbinding as to how they march and interact with you. Don’t forget to tick off the latest addition to the list — the chance to swim with penguins.
