Reviews and Additional Information

  1. I haven’t been skiing for years but jumped at the chance to have another try while I was in Dubai. I had a great time though I’d say it was a little bit expensive. I also think the skiwear they provide isn’t warm enough, so if you are planning on coming here I would advise thinking ahead and bringing some warm clothes.

  2. This is a very nice ski centre. It seems totally out of place in the middle of a hot country. It was fairly expensive but a lot of fun. You need to be an experienced skier to go on the main slope.
