Exclusive images of Ski Dubai
Works on Ski Dubai - the first in-door ski resort in the Middle East - are well progressing. Mena Report is exclusively publishing here the latest images of the new complex, where construction works began two years ago. These are the first images published on the Internet of the inside of Ski Dubai !
Upon completion, the new unique mountain-themed attraction will spread over 22,500 square meters covered with real snow all year round. All in all, Ski Dubai will have 6,000 tons of real snow, making the snow 50cm deep.
Ski Dubai, which is located at the Mall of the Emirates, boasts five slopes that vary in difficulty, height and steepness, the longest run being 400 meters with a fall of over 60 meters. For kids, a 3000 square meter interactive Snow Park is being built.
Ski Dubai, initiated by Majid Al Futtaim Investments, was scheduled to open in September 2005, but the opening was delayed due to some material shortages. A key phase in the project, the raising of the final section of the 400-meter ski slope, finished in May. There are about 1,300 laborers currently working to build this mammoth 25-storey ski resort project.
Ski Dubai's Snow Park will have also a large observation tower, offering a view of the entire resort, including the skiers and snowboarders on the slopes.
