Day 9 – Skiing in Dubai at Emirates Mall

It felt really weird walking -outside- and feeling that cozy warmth that usually comes from a fireplace as the lower legs of my pants dried after skiing. Then, not so much when I realized that, just a few minutes before, I had been warming my hands on a hot cup of coffee under a patio warmer in the middle Dubaian desert… Inside a giant freezer next to a ski lift of course.

Skiing at Ski Dubai (name check?) is possibly the most novel and exciting thing to do in Dubai, mostly just because it feels so put of place. I’m not saying anyone should book a flight just to go skiing in the desert. But really, if you happen to find yourself in Dubai, this is one thing that is sure to bring out a smile.
