The welcome afforded to the customer, Abdul Aziz, a UAE national, was certainly a special one, as he found himself being showered with confetti and applauded by members of the Ski Dubai staff.

Aziz, 32, an IT manager and resident of Abu Dhabi, was naturally surprised at the unexpected fanfare; but it was a surprise that quickly turned to joy. As part of the celebrations for being customer number two million, Aziz was gifted free entry to Ski Dubai for one whole year and two Dhs5,000 gift vouchers, to be redeemed at Fat Face and Lucky Brand Jeans outlets at Mall of the Emirates.

The celebrations were a change in the day’s fortunes for Aziz. “I was having a bad day up to this point, with two important meetings cancelled,” he said. “I came here to purchase a ticket for Ski Dubai, when suddenly the staff started to shower me with confetti. I am still in a state of shock and I can’t believe I am the two millionth visitor. I certainly wasn’t expecting this visit to turn into my most memorable one.”

“It was very exciting for us to welcome our two millionth customer here,” said Mike Mahoney, General Manager at Ski Dubai. “The figure proves that we are one of the most popular leisure destinations in Dubai. The increasing number of customers visiting our slopes proves how firmly Ski Dubai has established itself in the two and a half years we have been operating.”

The benchmark figure was achieved just before another major first for Ski Dubai, which is operated by the Majid Al Futtaim Group. From May 22-24, its slopes will host the Skiboard World Cup, a three-day international event that has attracted skiboarders from across the world. The competition will be the first major winter sports contest to be held in the Persian Gulf region.
