Skiers visiting Dubai’s famous indoor ski slope can now get there by metro.

The new Dubai metro has a stop at the Mall of the Emirates, home of Ski Dubai, making it possible for people to reach the ski slopes directly from the airport. The mall is famous for being a stopover destination for international travelers, and ski stopovers may eventually become a reality.

“It will take time for people to get used to the metro as such. I don’t think that they are ready to go from the airport to the metro to come here as he might be in London, for example,” the manager of the Kempinski hotel in the Mall told local media. “But once people are more accustomed to the concept they will start to use it, knowing that they can get from the airport to the hotel without going outside.”
