The attractive desert Emirate of Dubai has secured a firm reputation as a premier tourism destination. Offering sightseeing attractions, amazing shopping opportunities and a myriad of leisure options, Dubai truly offers something for every visitor. The selective traveller considering service apartments Dubai offers will find an appealing rest in the Ascott Park Place Dubai. This fine accommodation provides tastefully furnished rooms and considerate hospitality.
Visitors to Dubai should make it a point to experience the many delights offered by Ski Dubai, one of the world’s finest indoor skiing resorts. This splendid facility which is located within the enormous Mall of the Emirates, one of the world’s biggest shopping malls, opened its doors in 2005 and has since gained great popularity. Offering sensational experiences for snow lovers, this indoor resort in the midst of desert landscapes is truly a mesmeric experience.
As you might expect skiing takes pride of place at Ski Dubai with an array of breathtaking facilities on offer. Within the resort you will find an 85 m tall indoor hill with no less than five distinct slopes of differing degrees of difficulty and steepness. These include the only black run (challenging course) in the world to be found indoors. A sophisticated lift system is employed to take skiers to the top of the mountain.
You will also find a host of other attractions in this one of a kind ski resort. In the recreational area known as Snow Park you will find toboggan and sled runs, a body slide, huge snowballs, climbing towers and even an ice cavern. Another intriguing feature of the park is that it contains a flock of penguins which are released from their enclosures a number of times during the day. It is possible to book encounters with these unusual creatures so that visitors can interact closely with them. With so much to do and enjoy an excursion to Ski Dubai will undoubtedly meet and even exceed your expectations.
