Outdoor Ski Resort Planned For Middle East (13-Jul-08), July 13th, 2008 - The Arab emirate of Ras Al Khaimah has announced plans to go one-better

The Arab emirate of Ras Al Khaimah has announced plans to go one-better than neighbouring Dubai’s indoor ski resort by constructing a conventional ski resort in local hills where temperatures regularly reach +35 degrees Celsius.

The ski slope will be created using the latest snowmaking technology which allows snow to be created at high positive temperatures.  

The proposed slope at Ras Al Khaimah will be part of a mountain resort development reaching 1.900m in the Hajjar Mountains which will also include hotels, a golf course and mountain bike trails. A road to the location is currently under construction and expected to reach the site by 2010.

Ras Al Khaimah’s government has previously announced as indoor snow slope planned for its WOW RAK theme park development.
