At 321, it is the fourth-tallest hotel in the world, and is set on an artificial island out from Jumeirah beach. It offers ‘seven star’ luxury, with a fleet of white Rolls-Royces on the forecourt and dancing fountains in the foyer.
It may be hot outside, but that doesn’t rule out skiing in Dubai.

The longest run being 400m with a fall of over 60m. Snowboarders can practice their stunts in the Freestyle Zone.
