Dubai is keeping the Guinness World Records team on their toes with another world-beating endeavour, the largest indoor ski slope in the world. The new 1,2-km run attraction is located within the Meydan One project, which will also include the world’s tallest residential building and world’s largest dancing fountain in addition to the longest indoor slope ever made.

The US $6.8 billion project will create homes for 78,000 people and introduce 300 restaurants and cafes over an expanse of 40 million square feet. To accommodate all the snow-lovers, a 350-room hotel will join the party, as well as a 100-berth marina and a 300-metre beach.

The project will extend the current Meydan facility, which houses the world-class horse race track used for the Dubai World Cup events, and will stretch toward Burj Khalifa, which is still the world’s tallest tower.

Dubai’s current indoor ski resort, opened in 2005 in the Mall of the Emirates, remains the largest in the world, according to the Guinness World Records website, boasting a 400m slope. The slope runs year-round, despite summer temperatures in Dubai that can top 45C.
