Dubai Architecture: Ski Dubai

So when you think of Dubai (assuming you know where it is), you think Desert. You think of a city spread out over a sandy, dusty, hot and barren land. One thing you do not think of is a Ski Resort covered in snow year round with an average temperature of 28 degrees! However that is precisely what you will find emerging from the Mall of Emirates (One of the Largest Malls in the World)

Ski Dubai is a 22,500 square meter building with its floors covered in real snow all year long. The inside features five different runs that very in difficulty from easy to very difficult. It has the only Black Diamond Indoor Ski Slope in the world. It has a huge free style area for snow boarders. The slopes tower to a height of 25 stories with several ski lifts. Ski Dubai is intricately themed as a Mountain Ski Resort with finely detailed forest decorations and a “ski lodge” at the top of the “mountain” with coffee and warm snacks.

    Ski Dubai’s only problem is that it consumes tons of oil every day to keep it cool. Not green at all….
