Ski Dubai is fantastic. You'll be in all that it's freezing and real snow in Dubai. The pricing is interesting. Most packages don't include skiing. The packages include bobsledding, bumper cars, ski lift, and about 6 other snow activities. However skiing is an additional cost. Penguins are an additional cost. This can be a very expensive outing for a family of four. Also after awhile there's only a few things to keep teens attention.

I recommend Ski Dubai because it's a cool experience. They provide jackets, boots, leggings, gloves (not waterproof). The lockers cost additional. They say it's refundable, but most people forget to get their refund.

The pictures are expensive. You can take your camera in so savor the moments that way. You can't take pictures for in the Penguins attraction. One picture should be included but it isn't.

Great slopes, it wasn't too busy when we went (Noon) straight onto the ski lift, the cafe at the top does a mean hot chocolate. The penguins are also a huge bonus.

What a thrill to ski in the middle of the desert. Only in Dubai! Great restaurants along the side and perimeter to watch the skiers, tubers and sledders. Be sure to check times for the Penguin Parade! A real treat for children to get up close and pet the playful penguins.
