This is the only place in the world where one can enjoy skiing when outside temperature in peak summer is plus 48 Deg C !!!!

The largest Snowdome in the world, containing the world's third largest Indoor Ski Slope, has opened in the Gulf Emirate of Dubai .
Ski Dubai, 85m high by 80m wide, has to cope with average outside winter temperatures of 25C and summer temperatures soaring above 40C.
The temperature inside is maintained at -1 or -2C. Arabs who prefer to wear their traditional kandouras can hire black, knee-length padded coats.
The 22,500sq/m of piste are covered with 6,000 metric tons of manufactured snow all year round. The $272m resort is the latest project in the emirate which is seeking to become a major tourism hub.
"Snow in the desert is such a Unique experience for locals who have never seen snow," said Ski Dubai 's chief executive, Phil Taylor.
