Oh, wait! I am not in a rush to prove that the line “people call me insane” on my about page is right. Indeed, the ambiguity awakes when I say “snow in Dubai” as it is an arid desert region where the temperature never drops below 57 degrees Fahrenheit. But anything is possible in DUBAI. The below places to experience Snow in Dubai is proof of that!
Have a FREEZING READ GUYSS!!!
Ski Dubai located in the Mall Of Emirates, is an indoor ski resort with 22,500 square meters of the ski area where you can do ski, snowboard, toboggan, zip line and take a chairlift ride. This winter wonderland is also home to cute Gentoo and King Penguins. The park keeps a temperature of -1 degree to 2 degrees Celsius all around the year, and hence snow won’t be a scarcity.
Be ready to have the snowball fight, witness the penguin show and learn some ski lessons at Ski Dubai.

Chill Out Ice Lounge (Snow In Dubai)
An ice hotel in the middle of the desert, can you believe it? Mostly, we see these ice hotels in the Scandinavian region; however, it is quite hard to accommodate a concept of Ice hotel in a desert region like Dubai. See, anything is possible in Dubai.
Located in Times Square, Dubai, Chill Out Ice Lounge is a sub-zero ice hotel filled with ice statues, ice furniture and a uniquely illuminated interior. Hot soups, sandwiches, juices, hot chocolates, coffee, tea, confectionaries, and mock-tails are some of the eatables served in this wintry zone.
Chill Out Ice Lounge is definitely one of the best Instagram Worthy Spots in Dubai; where you can pose with the ice sculptures and post pictures claiming you are on vacation in Scandinavia. Sip a complimentary hot chocolate with pastry on this sub-zero hotel as you do in Swiss Alps.

Jebel Al Jais
Located in the emirate of Ras Al Khaimah, Jebel al Jais has an elevation of 1,934 m. During winters, when the temperature drops this place experience snowfall making it a picture-perfect winter destination.
World Islands (Snow In Dubai)
Dubai is expected to create a wintry feel by making artificial snowfall in the World Island. The World Islands are the artificial human-made archipelago fashioned in the shape of the world map. They are planning to effectively create an outdoor climate-controlled environment where fallen snowflakes will be collected by some type of mechanism under the surface and then recycled into new snow.
Don’t know how far it will be successful, but let us wait! It is Dubai, and anything can happen in Dubai.
