So I had my first skiing lesson… in a mall… in the desert… in Dubai. It counts though right? It was cold and I had ski gear on so I’m ticking it off the bucket list! 🙂 The Mall of Emirates have an incredible ski slope built within the mall itself. Not only do they have the facilities to ski and snow board but there’s also a zipline kind of thing called a snow bullet and you can also book an encounter with the penguins… PENGUINS!! You can book a lesson online or chance going down to the Mall itself. Do give yourself about half an hour to get all of your stuff together though as they are very prompt on time and will start the lesson without you. Also, mention at the counter about a locker as it’s not included.
