We do like to do things a bit differently in Dubai and playing rugby in the snow in the desert is definitely one of them.
Ahead of the Emirates Airline Dubai Rugby Sevens Tournament, there are plans to play a rugby tournament in Ski Dubai. On the snow. Rugby. On the snow.
It’s not as strange as you think. Snow rugby is already a big thing in places like Russia which is also part of the Asian Rugby Committee.
And as Dubai is part of the Asia Rugby committee, they want to showcase snow rugby here in Dubai.
They’re also looking to expand into beach rugby as well, which really makes a lot more sense considering our amazing beaches.
You can now watch a movie in the snow at Ski Dubai
The snow fun doesn’t end there, however.
We love a cool gimmick at DubaiLAD, and this is one of the coolest (pun intended) as you can now watch a movie on the slopes of Ski Dubai.
Vox Cinemas have teamed up with Ski Dubai to put a huge screen on the ski slope.
The Snow Cinema runs from December 11 until the end of February.
Head down during the day to catch family-friendly classics like The Grinch, Frozen 2 or Daddy’s Home 2. Or go down for the night screenings of Knives Out, The Call of The Wild and Last Christmas.
Naturally, you’ll get a cosy blanket to snuggle up in. Plus a full snowsuit including a fleece, gloves, socks, boots and wireless headphones. Covid-19 regulations mean each screening is limited to 48 people.
