The video looked awesome but I wondered not too far into it if it was all crazy good fun or at all nausea-inducing. Good to know! How cold would you say it is inside of Ski Dubai? Going from the ski slopes to dune slopes in the same day is pretty cool. What is the approx. temperature there currently? I don't know that I'll ever get over to the UAE so it's really awesome to follow along on your adventures!!

Inside Ski Dubai it was in the 30's. Quite comfortable for skiing. They give you pants and a jacket that you just throw over your clothes. I brought gloves from home and they recommend a hat or helmet but I didn't need that.

Outside we had some weird temps for this time of year. Some days the highs were normal in the mid-90's, but some days we had rain and highs only in the 70's which is pretty much unheard of. The airport was even flooding as we were departing! There's a lot of random cloud seeding and terra forming going on over there, mix that in with global warming and it's a good thing they have so much to do indoors!

I know quite a lot about Donkeys!

Indoor skiing in the desert! Be still my heart!

You all looked like you were have a --- pardon the pun -- KOOL adventure. And I can see some budding skiers flying down those slopes. ;)

I've had a lifetime passion for skiing. And a combo holiday of roller coasters and skiing would be my Fantasyland! (Am checking out a Bump for Boomers clinic in Colorado. Claims to be fun, challenging, but just a tad easier on boomer knees!)

(I've tried riding (boarding), but had a terrible teacher who chuckled evilly as I splattered myself all over the slopes and broke my goggles. I hear it's a sport that once you master, the learning curve is great. I may try it again, but, so far, I'm still hooked on skiing. (Elissa, do you prefer riding to skiing?)

I started boarding after skiing was taking a toll on my knees and my mother tore her ACL skiing (which means I have a greater chance now too!).

I really suck, and it's a horrible learning curve. From what I've been told, it's harder to learn but once you do you can advance quickly as opposed to skiing which you can learn quickly, but then takes forever to get skiing advanced runs. I'm just now comfortable riding the lift and skiing higher level green, but felt like I was starting over with the indoor snow. I would go back to skiing in a second if I thought my knees could take it.
