Visitors to Dubai who suffer in the summer temperatures over 45°C can cool off at Ski Dubai.
The resort offers the full winter experience, from building snowmen to taking ski lessons. There is even the ‘cozy mountain lodge’ where you can sit by the fireplace and enjoy some apres ski … though of course your glass of mulled wine would have to be non-alcoholic.
Still, Ski Dubai doubtless has the largest energy bill as a result of maintaining a temperature around -1°C in the desert!
Thanks to Roy, Jack Langdon and David Thornton.
