The article features Ski Dubai which is the world's third-largest indoor ski slope, with its 400-metre runs covered by 6,000 tons of snow. Ski Dubai is attached to the Mall of the Emirates, the world's third largest shopping centre. People come to it mainly to escape the heat outside, however, there are many facilities like drag lifts, snowboard park and a nursery slope and expert section. Though its a fun place, concerns are expressed that it will add to the global warming.
