Skiing in the Desert

This is Ski Dubai

It's in a shopping center

There is a cafe next to it calles The St Moritz Cafe, decorated like a ski lodge and which is dotted with 42" plasma TVs set into stone fireplaces showing a loop of video of a roaring log fire.

Apparently - according to the local paper - its very energy efficient, as it is extremely well insulated. This means it only used 2% or 3% more energy to chill it down to -2 inside during the summer when compared to the (20 degrees cooler outside) winter!

Really, there's nothing more to say about it!
