Tents on snow offer reprieve in Dubai heat

Associated Press Associated Press 21/07/2016

Visitors to Dubai have a new way to keep cool during the scorching Middle East summer.

The company behind the city's indoor ski slope plans to let guests stay overnight in tents on the man-made snow on Fridays starting from July 29.

For 750 dirhams ($A272.85) a person, campers will get after-hours access to the slopes and refreshments including hot chocolate before bedding down in tents and sleeping bags to keep out the artificial chill.

Breakfast is in an adjacent Alpine-themed cafe.

The man-made Ski Dubai attraction opened in 2005 in the Mall of the Emirates shopping complex.

Its operator says overnight visitors can expect temperatures of -4 degrees Celsius. The average temperature in July is 35 degrees.
