Dubai and Other Places You Probably Don't Associate with Skiing

Weburbanist has a neat post about 5 Places You've Probably Never Thought to Go Skiing. Amongst the far out places are Lebanon (check the weather and the political climate before you go), Bolivia (the highest ski slope in the world) and this one above: Dubai.

The Ski Dubai indoor slope has over 20,000 square meters of interior space and accommodates snowboarding and sledding in addition to skiing. Since it is, of course, not weather-dependent it is open all year round with five runs of varying difficulty and a freestyle zone. The building is highly energy-efficient but of course no indoor ski area in the desert can be considered environmentally friendly.

How much money do they have anyways? Link

I cannot help myself but I have quite a problem with places like Dubai having artificial ski slopes. In my opinion it's hard to top the decadence of that nowadays. But hey; it's just me.

What?? Dubai is one of the richest cities in the world. The people there are not starving... better check your facts next time chief.

And another place you wouldn't expect to go skiing would be in Rutherford, New Jersey (like 10 mins away from New York City). They are building the Xanadu there, it's some monstrosity that's taking over the area Giant Stadium used to be. They are supposed to big a huge ski slope there too... I think it's the first one in America too...
