Saudis play at the indoor snow theme park "Snow City" in the Al-Othaim Mall Rabwa in the capital RiyadhSaudi women wearing the compulsory traditional abaya that covers the body from head to toe are now donning thermal coats and cosy boots as they sit on sledges to scoot down the slopes of "Snow City". The complex is a rarity in Saudi Arabia where there are only small-scale amusement parks for children, and where cinemas or theatres are not allowed. Stretching over 5,000 square metres (53,800 square feet), the entertainment project does not have proper ski pistes as such, but its modest indoor slopes still manage to provide frosty fun in a country that is mostly desert and searing heat.
