Skiing & Snowboarding
Unlike nature, the slopes of Ski Dubai are tailor-made for skiing and snowboarding. With varying degrees of difficulty packed into one long slope, the venue is perfect for all lovers of these mountain sports as well as newbies looking to learn the art of conquering snowy slopes.
Zorbing & Tobogganing
Ski Dubai has more to than just skiing and snowboarding. The venue is home to some exhilirating activities such as Zorbing (rolling down the slope in an inflated ball) and Tobogganing (a simple sled to slide down icy slopes and immensely popular with kids). Both these activities are extremely popular amongst visiting groups and families.
Penguin Encounter Dubai
Ski Dubai is home to Gentoo and King Penguins. These lovely birds reside in a sophisticated habitat, equipped with a private pool, comfortable top deck resting area and a private holding area. Spot the Gentoo penguins, the third largest penguin, by the white cap extending from eye to eye on over the top of their heads. King penguins are slightly bigger, making them the second largest, and have signature bright orange patches on the side of their head. Observe these extraordinary creatures during a penguin encounter at Ski Dubai from a glass wall as they move freely about their home.

Ski Dubai Snow Park Reviews
Ski Dubai is a wonderful place to spend time with your family. For that I recommend to choose the package Snow Premium for full day access to snow park and also to the slope. We did it, and spent a whole day having fun. At the snow park you have a lot of activities - bobsledding, zorbing, tubing, chairlift ride, also we’ve chosen penguin encounter which was very interesting.
The package included all day access, rental of closing and skiing equipment, gloves, meal, and hot chocolate which we chose to have in the cafe at the slope.
Good Experience. We particularly went to the Penguins encounter,and its the most cutest thing one could ever experience not only my lil one had a fabulous time but we all enjoyed,the Trainer Eugene knew almost everything about those fury animal so kept pouring us with all the information.
