Ski Dubai Main Attractions

Tobogganing hills, an epic chairlift, the world’s first sub-zero zip line and more, Ski Dubai hosts an array of attractions, including the amazing opportunity to interact with penguins. Home to King and Gentoo penguins, the park offers guests several activities to interact with these incredible birds. One of Ski Dubai’s newest experiences - the chance to swim with penguins! After you’ve had your fix of playing in the snow, be sure to warm up with a cup of North 28’s famous hot cocoa.

The Slopes

Head to the longest ski slope in the Middle East - right in the middle of the Arabian desert. The main attraction at Ski Dubai is the slope. With 5 runs that vary in difficulty, height and gradient, skiers and boarders of all skill levels can enjoy the slopes.

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 birds from a glass wall as they move freely about their home.

Swimming with the Penguins

Ski Dubai offers guests one of the most incredible opportunities to get up close and personal with these lovable creatures! Only available once a week, go swimming with the penguins in a 10c 5 foot deep pool. The session is only available to adults (18 years and older) who know how to swim. Up to two people can enjoy the experience at a time.

North 28 Cafe

Make your way to the top of the ski slopes, either by chairlift or foot, and and step into this mountain-themed cafe. Cozy up in minus 4 degrees and warm up with a cup of world famous hot chocolate.

Ski Dubai Snow Park Reviews

Ski Dubai is a brilliant place to come to learn to ski or at any level of skiing. It is -5 inside so very cold. I used the ski gear provided and cannot fault it. You can select your level and they will determine your skis for you.

All slopes inside are brilliant there is an expert and intermediate slope but great. Would recommend the 2 hour pass because if you have skied before you will have plenty of time with that.
