    If it wasn`t so difficult/dangerous to visit the Middle East I would definitely consider going.

    or.. you could go to an actual snow resort, rather than travelling to the middle east.. just a thought. you can ski on sand anyhoo.

    Actually, the UAE is as safe as it gets, nothing dangerous about the place.

    They`re one of the few countries over there to have a generally nice attitude towards the U.S.

    I`ve been there a few times (not to this skiing place) and it`s really nice.

    What a novel idea. I wonder if it will stay in business after the novelty wears off.

    Bobbyo, before you go pointing the finger at the Arabs for taking all your money why don`t you learn about your own government, well over half of what you pay on gas is TAX. Without the tax gas is only 60 to 70 cents a gallon, if anyone has all your money it`s the government.

    haha just read the posts about gas, u wanna try living in the UK petrol (gas) is now £1 ($1.7) a litre. so a gallon costs £3.60 ($6.2).

    yes, because we don`t use smelly black petrol. We use good ol` Freedom Liquid to fuel OUR cars.

    GOD BLESS THE USA!

    @ JonKemper: Well their really aren`t too many choices when it comes to skiing in the UAE now are there.

    Nothing of it matters to me, I just go in my car 45 minutes west and I`m in the Poconos, or a couple hours north and im in Vermont. There`s no shortage of skiing around me.

    I`d rather do it on a real mountain just because of the fact that its easier to have sex in the woods than a bathroom stall
