Ski Dubai

Dubai is the only place in the world where one can ski 3 different ways: snow, sand, and water.  This is thanks to a massive ski slope built into the Mall of the Emirates.  We didn't ski, but did tube down several ice slides, ride the ski lift, and tag-teamed a menacing stretch of slope called Backwinder's Stampede (name I made up).  Both of us almost broke our tailbones on that run.  Kristin also leaped into a padded ball and was pushed down a slope.

 They did a good job giving it a winter wonderland feel

 Some small slopes for the kids and Kristin and I 

 Kristin would later leap into one of these spheres and go tumbling down the hill.

 They spun her really good down this slope.

 They gave us very heavy jackets

 Pretty cool this is all in a mall
