That's a neat shot. I didn't know there was such a thing as an indoor ski slope. I guess I'm showing my ignorance but nice to learn about something new. Happy weekend.

Wow! A ski slope in a mall! It's expensive to construct. I wonder if my country would have one. It would be fun.

Happy Mother's Day!

I have seen several documentaries on Dubai looks like a very interesting place. It is amazing the building projects they have out to sea. I watched one about them building that indoor ski slope. Thanks for coming to my place and seeing me flaked out on the couch.

I thought I read it wrong, skiing in Dubai? The sands of Dubai? :) Of course it's indoor. Happy weekend!

Hootin' Anni said...

They'll do most anything, won't they.

Tink said...

I'm going to have to check and see why Sharp reader isn't updating. I have missed a month of Mondays in posts. All of the great, by the way. I always love looking at your layouts. They are so inspirational.

Lani said...

I always learn something new from the photo hunt each week - this week I learn there is indoor skiing!

WillThink4Wine said...

I think that nearly anything is possible in Dubai, if they throw enough money at it!

Allessandro seems to be enjoying himself!

Dragonheart & Merlin said...

Very cool. :) That's a great scrapbook layout too!

Dragonstar said...

That's quite a scene! I thought artificial ski-slopes were something like astroturf - shows what I know. A ski-slope in Dubai sounds impossible, and to have one in a mall ... Wonderful!

A. said...

Great entry! I know about the ski slopes in Dubai because my son has had an apartment there for a few years. However he has just sold it and is now back in Europe, so going the reverse direction!

YTSL said...

Saw that indoor ski slope in an Asian Amazing Race episode. It looks great. Must be VERY expensive to maintain!

Cats~Goats~Quotes said...

That mall must be absolutely Amazing.

Sammawow said...

Wow, that is incredible - I have never heard of skiing in a mall before! Hope that you had a great Mother's Day Weekend!
