Visitors play in the snow in front of restaurants at the indoor mountain-themed ski park, at Emirates mall in Dubai.
The 22,500 square-metre theme park features five runs, including a 400-metre ski slope that holds more than 6,000 tonnes of snow. The $272-million resort is the first such project in the emirate, which is seeking to become a major tourism hub. Reuters/Ahmed Jadallah
