Who said we couldn’t have a white Christmas in the desert? Well we can, and with the world’s most lovable snowman, no less.
Disney’s Olaf is coming to Ski Dubai next week for a Frozen adventure, celebrating Christmas traditions from around the world – our favourite being the festive snowball to the face.
From Sunday (Dec 10) our loveable frosty friend will be brought to life in the indoor ski slope, where guests will be able to travel through a frozen forest and venture into various festive zones, while getting well and truly stuck into the white stuff.
The Snow Globe zone features a life size snow globe with our favourite Frozen favourites clamouring for a selfie, while the Snowman making zone will allow visitors to build their own snowman pal (or make an Olaf rip off).
Santa’s Grotto will feature the fat man himself between Dec 10-24, giving out gifts to all of the good girls and boys (soz Aunt Carole).
Last but not least, snow-dwellers will be able to marvel at Ski Dubai’s famous 40ft Christmas tree, for an extra flush of festive spirit at the wondrous winter wonderland.
After your rampage through the snow, you can warm up with a cup of hot chocolate in Olaf’s Warm Hug area, before visiting the pop-up retail zone featuring limited edition Olaf merchandise.
And if you’re really feeling the Frozen vibes, you can nip along to VOX Cinemas to catch Olaf’s latest movie, Olaf’s Frozen Adventure, which will be playing until December 14. It’s enough to make your heart melt.
Dhs150 (entry, hot chocolate, VOX cinema ticket to see Pixar’s Coco and Olaf’s Frozen Adventure), Dhs130 (entry and hot chocolate). From Dec 10-24. Ski Dubai, Mall of the Emirates, www.skidxb.com.
