Dan: Hey guys, Dan here, in Dubai. So, what
do you do when it’s 43 degrees outside and you are sticky hot? You just wanna cool down?
I’ll tell what you do, you go snowboarding in an indoor snow park. Unbelievable. We’re
strapped in and we’re getting ready to hit the slopes. Oh wow! Look at this little zip
line up here. Ha! Look at that. They’ve got a zip-line, above a snowfield, inside
a shopping mall, in the desert. Seriously, can it get any weirder? Now this is surreal.
I’ve just come from 43 degrees outside, wearing a t-shirt, shorts, and double pluggers
to wearing a jacket, ski jacket mind you, ski pants, boots, gloves, beanie, and I’m
indoors, inside a snowpark, in the desert of all places. This is, um, this is going
to bring a tear to my eye. I’d hate to know how much it costs to run this every day because,
the electricity is on day-in, day-out. Like, 24/7 this place is running, just to keep the
snow. Surreal, absolutely surreal. So if you look across to the left, there’s actually
a J-bar running up to the side there as well. It looks like a J-bar or a poma, so um, we’ll
give that a go. That’s actually pretty amazing, because where that J-bar is, across the left
here, is actually where all the shops are. Um, so you can go up the side and there’s
a glass panel or glass window that looks into the whole shopping center while you’re skiing. This, is going to be fun. This is epic, seriously. An indoor ski park, who would have thought
of it? Dan: A-mah-zing, absolutely a-mah-zing. We’ll
I’m going to strap in, let’s do this. Alright, getting some speed. Wooh, so good.
I’m snowboarding, in the desert. Ripping around this little whip down here. Woah, it gets so icy through that little section there. Let’s go, let’s go Jared. Haha, so good.
Absolutely a-mah-zing. Let’s ski over to the old t-bar. I gotta warn you, I haven’t
ridden a t-bar or a poma for a long time, so if I stack, please be gentle. I remember
being down in Persia, asking for a rocket on one of these, hold on to one of these for
a while, and then it shoots off. Not like the old days, it’s a bit smoother down in
Persia. I love the fact that there’s just a shopping center up to my left, come up here,
and then, TGIFridays up at the left, maybe people are having lunch or dinner, having
a brewski, while I’m here in minus temperatures snowboarding. A-mah, zing. Here we go, here’s
the first one, I’m gonna fall off one of these. [Grunting] Oh my goodness, and the
second one. This one is a bit worse because it goes straight up as well. [Grunting] My
inner thigh is gonna be so sore after this. All my legs were bruised up from yesterdays
flow rider. It’s a tough job, but someone’s gotta do it. Taking one for the team. Alright.
Snowboarding in the desert. It doesn’t come much sweeter. Alright, here we go, gonna traverse
across. Gonna whip around this little whip here. You know it. Cold. Cold. I liked that
run actually. Coming from the, coming from the far left, coming from the far left up
here, you come down and whip across onto the right, and then you come straight down. It’s
probably the longest run you can actually do. [Laughing] I don’t if you can see right
behind me in the far distance, the chalet’s at the top, snow chalet’s in the desert,
and down at the bottom, a whole heap of restaurants and fine dining. This place is insane. If
you can dream about it I think it happens in Dubai. Oh there’s the zip-line; the dude’s
loving it, absolutely loving life. Dan: ah. Someone’s absolutely stacked against
the wall down here. You alright? You ok? Wow. Brave girl. No problem. Wander if they’ve
got travel insurance? That little girl just came streaming down, took a beeline straight
for this fence over here. Absolutely smacked it. A couple little tears, she’s back up,
back up to hit it all over again. You guys get a chance, come to Dubai, check it on your
bucket list, even if you only spend a couple days here on your way to Europe or somewhere,
make sure you spend atleast 2 or 3 days here, there’s so much to be done. Look, you can
spend a whole day just at this ski park or you can just spend two hours and then head
off and go do something else, depends how much you wanna cram into a day or a couple
days, but definitely worth giving it a go.
