Ski Dubai is an indoor ski resort, so it can be visited at any time of the year.

The facility maintains a controlled environment with consistent temperature and snow conditions, regardless of the outdoor weather in Dubai.

Weekends and holidays tend to be busier, so if you prefer a more relaxed experience with shorter queues, consider visiting on weekdays.

What to do at Ski Dubai

Ski Dubai is a highly-rated tourist draw (4.5 out of 5 on Tripadvisor) in Dubai, with four major attractions where visitors can do many activities.

Ski Dubai’s Snow Slope

Visitors who book skiing tickets spend their time on Ski Dubai’s slope. 

Experienced skiers and snowboarders with Intermediate Level 2* skills can climb the slope.

If you aren’t an experienced skier, you will undergo some training before you are allowed on the snow slope. 

Ski Dubai’s slope is designed to look like the picturesque Georgian mountains and is perfect for full-on winter sports action.

This Ski slope has five different runs of varying difficulty, height, gradient, and length.

The longest run is 400 meters (1310 feet) with a drop of more than 60 meters (197 feet). 

Important: To be considered ‘Intermediate Level 2,’ as a skier, you must keep your skis parallel while skiing, and as a snowboarder, you must be able to make curved turns.

Restrictions at the Ski slope

a) Kids under two years of age can’t enter Ski Dubai Slope

b) Kids aged 2 to 8 years can only enter with adult supervision

c) Children aged 9 to 12 years can enter if the guardian is present within Mall of the Emirates premises

d) Visitors below 21 years of age must get a waiver form signed by their guardian before they can enter the Ski slope

Snow Park Dubai

Snow World at Ski Dubai is the perfect destination for visitors who don’t want to ski or snowboard but want to indulge in other winter games. 

To access the Snow Park, buy the Snow Park Dubai tickets

Since the games at Snow World aren’t as risky as skiing or snowboarding, there is only one restriction: Kids aged 14 or less should be under the supervision of visitors 16 years or more.

Here are some of the most popular games and activities in the Dubai Snow Park – 

1. Bobsled runs

This run is an adrenalin rush because you get on to a gravity-powered bobsled and hurtle down a narrow, twisting, banked, iced track. 

It’s a perfect winter sports experience.

2. Chairlift

Ski Dubai chairlift is a state-of-the-art experience with stunning views of the Snow Park, the Ski Dubai slope, and all the other visitors who are busy having fun.

3. Zorb Ball (Giant Ball)

This is an excellent activity at Ski Dubai if you can manage confined spaces. 

You can get inside a massive ball and then roll down Ski Dubai’s slope at a fast yet controlled pace. 

Both kids and adults love the Zorb Ball. 

4. Mountain Thriller

If you love speed, this is perfect for you. 

You will get into a custom-built ride, strap yourself, and let go for a quick adrenalin-filled ride down a 185m (607 feet) high slope at up to 45kph (28 Miles per hour).

5. Tubing Run

This run is the old-fashioned winter sport played in all snow-clad areas. 

You can sit on a tube alone or with someone else and hurtle down the snow mountain even as you enjoy the views from the side. 

6. Snow Bullet

The Snow Bullet is a 150-meter (492 feet) long indoor zip line, the first in UAE. 

Going up on this 16-meter (52.5 feet) high zip line needs courage, but it is worth trying.

7. Snow Bumpers 

Even though they are named ‘Snow Bumpers,’ they are the regular bumper cars you may have experienced elsewhere. 

But why complain when you can join the Snow Bumper Car mayhem and fight off the challenge from your friends and family.

8. Snow Plough Playground

This timber structure is a new attraction at Snow Park Dubai. 

Kids love the crawl tubes, slides, slackline, climbing wall, and this attraction’s driver’s seat, designed like a Piston Bully.

Once in the driver’s seat, the kids can experience steering and hear life-like noises.

9. Climbing Wall 

This climbing wall at Ski Dubai resembles a rocky mountain and is perfect for kids. 

The smooth and quick climb to the top keeps the kids asking for more. 

10. Sliding Hill

The kids also get to slide down the snowy, smaller slopes at Ski Dubai. 

Kids of all ages love it, and laughter is all one can hear at Sliding Hill. 

Ski School

The Ski School at Ski Dubai has professional coaches who teach skiing and snowboarding to people of all skill levels.

The minimum age for ski lessons is three years, and for snowboarding lessons, it is eight years.
