Indoor Ski Resort in Dubai

Sometimes you come across something that just flat out boggles your mind. This is an indoor ski resort in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

Under construction.

Here it is finished. You can get a sense of how big this is by looking at the palm trees in front. They look like shrubs!

Here's the inside, complete with polar bear!

Wow, just WOW.........

What an amazing engineering job. I hate to even imagine what the refrigeration units must cost to run. I wonder what a lift ticket costs.......

Hat tip to FUZE for the pic's.

So they built this instead of helping their fellow muslims after the tsunami? Wow. Typical.

As for me,
Dubai is one of the most breathtaking places in the world. And Dubai ski resort is one else proof.
Just imagine, for Arabs, who never have seen snow, it is a magic. In hot weather you are able to plunge in a cold place.
Arabs are really fine fellows.
They want to be the first, and they will be, definitely!
So many fantastic projects are rising day by day, people from all over the world are interested in investing in Dubai property.
Government and UAE's people really aim at high successes.
