First there was the Ocean Dome. Now there is another engineering oddity, this time in Dubai, UAE. See if you can make out what it is, shown here during the construction phase……

Here is the completed structure. Notice the palm trees outside……….

A friendly hint: this “masterpiece” was built in the middle of the desert, in a place where the temperatures can easily get up to 120˚F. Take a look at the inside view:

Let’s all go skiing in the desert. Unbelievable!

Ski Dubai is the first indoor ski resort in the Middle East and offers an amazing snow setting to enjoy skiing, snowboarding, and tobogganing or just playing in the snow. Young or old, there is something for everyone, from the beginner to the snow sport enthusiast. Ski Dubai is a unique mountain-themed attraction that offers the opportunity to enjoy real snow in Dubai all year round.

This description comes from the Web site:

Skiers and snowboarders of all skill levels will enjoy these various slopes and snowboarders can also practice their stunts on the 90-metre long quarter pipe. Kids and parents alike will have fun in the huge interactive Snow Park, which at 3000 square meters is the largest indoor snow park in the world.

You don’t have to worry about ski clothing or equipment either. Ski Dubai has thought of it all and offers guests the use of winter clothing, ski and snowboard equipment. Your skis will carry you down the slope, and our quad-chairlift and tow lift will promptly carry you back to the top for another run.

You will enjoy our themed restaurants; the St Moritz Café at the entrance to Ski Dubai, and the Avalanche Café at mid-station, with views of the slope. Our exclusive retail shop, Snow Pro, has expert staff to advise you on your equipment needs and our team of professional instructors will guide you through the simple, fun process of learning to ski or snowboard.
