Last week, when the UAE was recognised as being the hottest place in the world (50.5°C in Al Ain!) Out & About UAE decided to take a trip to Ski Dubai and get some some respite from the sweltering heat.

Located inside the Mall Of The Emirates, Ski Dubai is the Middle East’s first indoor ski resort and a marvel of the modern world. It’s the size of three football fields (22,500 SQM) and contains five runs, at a maximum height of 85m. Snow is present all year round and the temperature is maintained between -2°C and -20°C.
