Handled by EverSnow, the French company will create a unique snow covered venue thanks to an air-conditioned show tent measuring over 2,000 square meters, according to Trade Arabia news.

Using a snowing-up process that produces frozen water flakes which are crushed and pulverised, the snow is produced using energy and pure water free of any additives and has no environmental impact. It strongly resembles spring snow, being very slippery and quick to coalesce whatever the temperature at the snowing-up site.

Intended for the grand prix public, it will feature a 400 square meters snow garden, a cross-country skiing trail, a freestyle ramp complete with crash pad for skis and rubber dinghies, an ice-climbing wall and a 100-square meter skating rink. Moreover, an antique ski museum, showing models from the 1900 to the present day, has been planned.
