What are the best Ski Dubai tours?

There are no guided tours at Ski Dubai because everything is so easy to discover by yourself. Staff members are always on hand to point you in the right direction.

If you are new to the slopes and fancy learning how to ski or snowboard, private lessons are available for individuals, families, and groups of all abilities.

Some Ski Dubai tour packages include return transfers from hotels or central pick-up points in the city, which will help your day go without a hitch. Private transfer tour packages are also available.

Should you book Ski Dubai tickets in advance?

Absolutely. Visitor numbers are restricted on the slopes to give everyone plenty of space, so booking your Ski Dubai tickets ahead of time will ensure you bag your preferred time slot.

Pre-arranging a tour that includes transfers will minimize hassle and make your visit run like clockwork.

What will you see inside Ski Dubai?

The main event at Ski Dubai is the perfectly conditioned indoor slope, where you can practice your snowplows or race your friends to the finish line. Only open to experienced skiers and snowboarders, the slope is the best place in town for some serious chill time. Lessons are available for those who are new to the sport or want to brush up on their skills.

Younger explorers and bird enthusiasts love interacting with the emperor and gentoo penguins that call Ski Dubai their home. Walk beside these fascinating creatures from the Antarctic and watch them waddling through the snow on the Penguin March.

Not into skiing? Then sit back and admire the views from your lofty perch on the chairlift ride, or go sledding in the Snow Park. See who can build the best snowman and roll around inside a giant zorb ball.

Thrill-seekers should fly along the Snow Bullet zip line, or try hurtling down the Mountain Thriller bobsled track for an exhilarating winter sports experience. Are you brave enough?

Reward your exertions with a gourmet meal at the North 28 Restaurant, or take the chairlift up to the Avalanche Café for sweet treats and steaming mugs of hot chocolate.

Where is Ski Dubai located?

Ski Dubai is conveniently located in the Mall of the Emirates, so you can enjoy some shopping after hitting the slopes. Parking at the mall is free with validated Ski Dubai tickets.

The Mall can also be reached by metro – take the red line that runs from Rashidiya Station to the UAE Exchange Station.

When is the best time to visit Ski Dubai?

To avoid the busiest times of day, try to time your Ski Dubai visit during the morning or later in the evening. Weekdays tend to be quieter than weekends and public holidays.
