The temperature outside was 45c, inside it was -10c.
I carried ski boots and clothing from the car park to the ski dome, the extremes of temperature were astounding.
Ski Dubai is an indoor ski resort, access is via the Mall of the Emirates on the ground floor of the mall. It opened in November 2005 and features an 85 meter high mountain, 5 slopes, a 400 meter long run. There's both a quad and a tow lift for skiers and snow boarders. All equipment and skis are included in your ticket price.
