A beautiful new video offers an in-depth look at what is usually considered an diversion not one of Dubai's central attractions.

In the gorgeously photographed short film, skiers Jordan Manley and Chad Sayers visit the city's only "mountain," the indoor slope at the Mall of the Emirates to uncover an unlikely ski scene in the heart of an unforgiving desert.

Interviews with locals add a fresh element to the usual angle on the unusual attraction. Most interestingly, many regulars at the indoor slope has never been skiing outdoors. One Moroccan tells the filmmakers he moved to Dubai specifically to ski.

The video first appeared in Powder magazine, as a part of its "A Skier's Journey" series.
