Ski Egypt Given September Opening Date

Ski Egypt, the first indoor snow centre on the African continent and the second indoor snow centre from the Dubai-based Majid Al Futtaim group who launched Ski Dubai in 2005, will open in September this year according to reports from Cairo.

Other than Antarctica, Africa is the only continent not yet to have an indoor snow centre, although the only one in North America, built eight years ago at what is currently called the American Dream shopping mall in New Jersey, is yet to open to the public.

The Majid Al Futtaim launched a major recruitment drive for staff for the mall where the ski slope will be located – the Mall of Egypt – last month.  The company is looking for 4,000 workers for the retail complex, which will house 350 shops  as well as a 21 multi-screen VOX Cinemas, a Magic Planet family entertainment centre as well as 6,500 car parking spaces.
