|At Ski Dubai Entrance|
Finally arrived. The Ski Dubai is a amazing indoor snow resort in the Mall of Emirates. Having a mountain-themed wintry setting, with huge ski slopes, it a perfect place to have a comparable feel of skiing in the real natural environment.
The common entrance fees are the Super Pass at AED 250 (includes visiting, car lift ride, giant ball and fleece gloves voucher) and Power Pass at AED 300 (includes super pass and discovery lesson or peng-friend encounter or snow bullet). However, we did not come for leisure but instead wanting to gain some snowboarding experience. So we went for the Ski School Discovery Lesson (60mins session) at AED150.
|Got Our Tix!|
Head inside, collect our winter cloths, basically a outer-shell jacket and long-pants. Very good quality. Keeps me sweating. A pair of boots (you can ask for disposable socks too). And a Snowboard! The only disappointment was sleeve or gloves was not provided or given. So we got to buy new ones, fortunately was cheap, AED50 a pair. There should be more notice and warnings about this.
I must admit it was a exceptional experience. Snowboarding was much easier compared to wakeboarding that i tried in Malaysia at Putrajaya. Guess it is much easier to balance on snow than water. The snowboarding feeling was awesome. I was never good at ice skiing, still remembered how i slip and fell down embarrassingly. At least i am pretty good at snowboarding. cool.
