Because of the warm and sunny climate of Dubai, some people think that skiing in the city is impossible, but it’s really not. Obviously, skiing outdoors is not possible, but the city has an indoor ski resort that can replicate the authentic experience. Called Ski Dubai, the resort has 22,500 square meters of indoor ski area, which maintains a temperature of -1 degree to 2 degrees Celsius throughout the year. It is a part of the Mall of the Emirates, one of the largest shopping malls in the world.
