The World largest Indoor Snow Park opened in Dubai


The largest snowdome in the world, containing the world’s third largest indoor ski slope, has opened in the Gulf emirate of Dubai.

Ski Dubai, 85m high by 80m wide, has to cope with average outside winter temperatures of 25C and summer temperatures soaring above 40C.

The temperature inside is maintained at -1 or -2C. Arabs who prefer to wear their traditional kandouras can hire black, knee-length padded coats.

The 22,500sq/m of piste are covered with 6,000 metric tons of manufactured snow all year round.

The $272m resort is the latest project in the emirate which is seeking to become a major tourism hub.
