Ski Dubai

While we spent 6 weeks in Texas alone without Nick, he primarily worked at the office. But thankfully he got one weekend away in Dubai with a few friends/co-workers.

The guys spent 2 hours skiing in below freezing temperatures while the actual temp outside was well over 100. Ski Dubai is located in the middle of an enormous mall. In the picture below you can see the lights behind Nick where people are shopping, eating, or just hanging out to watch the skiing. When you purchase a ticket to ski, snow board or sled your ticket includes all the gear. So no need to pack your gloves along with your swimsuit.

Another highlight from their weekend was taking in the sights of Dubai from Burj Kalifa, the tallest building in the world. (no pics, but we were thrilled to get a few from the skiing)

What a great reprieve from the heat! Love these "men" posts without their families.
