La plus grande piste de ski couverte du monde à Dubai (en anglais)

Dubaï a annoncé la construction de la plus grande piste de ski couverte du monde, d'une longueur de 1,2 km. (en anglais)
Dubai has announced it will build the world’s largest indoor ski resort, with a 1.2 kilometre run.

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 400 metre slope.

The slope runs year-round despite summer temperatures in Dubai that can top 45°C.
The new covered ski resort comes as part of a scheme dubbed Meydan One, which will also include the world’s tallest residential tower at 711 metres, a dancing fountain sweeping up to 420 metres, a vast shopping centre, a 350-room hotel and a marina, according to a government statement.

With an estimated cost of up to USD 6.8bn, the project would extend from the Meydan race track in the Emirate’s desert to Burj Khalifa.
The first phase of the project, which will eventually house up to 78,000 residents, should be completed within the next five years, according to its promoters; just in time for the UAE’s hosting of the World Expo 2020.
