Wealthy tourists in luxurious Dubai want to satisfy their every whim. Should they decide they want to ski in the desert, there’s a place for that.Ski Dubai is an indoor ski resort that reportedly cost $400 million to build back in 2005. The resort has five slopes and is kept at a chilly -1 degrees Celsius.
