The Majid Al Futtaim group, the company behind Ski Dubai, the iconic indoor snow centre, have announced plans to open a new indoor snow centre, ‘Ski Egypt,’ within three years. It would be Egypt’s first indoor snow centre.

The indoor ski slope will be part of Majid Al Futtaim's 4.4 billion Egyptian pound Mall of Egypt project, which is scheduled to open in 2014.

"It's going to be more of a snow park, but there's going to be a slope element," Arnaud Palu, the chief executive officer of Majid Al Futtaim Leisure, told local media, “It is provisionally called Ski Egypt.”

The design for Ski Egypt’s slopes have not yet been finalised, according to Mr Palu, who previously ran SNO!zone in the UK which operates three indoor snow centres in England and Scotland.

However it will not be as large as Ski Dubai, one of the world’s 10 biggest indoor snow slopes with a 400m long snow surface including a black run, which was designed by Acer Snowmec.
