Ski Dubai, Dubai

Mall of the Emirates
Sheikh Zayed Road
United Arab Emirates
Tel: 971 4409 4000's insider take:

Essentially a giant freezer attached to the Mall of the Emirates, Dubai's first indoor ski slope has a chairlift to five separate stations, including the world's first indoor black run, whose thrill comes not just from the 60-meter drop but from the knowledge that outside it might be 130 degrees in the shade. Nonskiers can toboggan, "rock" climb, and make snow angels and snowmen in the world's largest indoor snow park, where fresh powder falls every night. Ski Dubai's Avalanche Café, midway up the slope, offers non-alcoholic mulled wine. A two-hour lift pass with all equipment costs $80; ski and snowboard lessons from $40 per hour.
