A year ago an email was going around about the Ski place being built in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The email was all about why we are paying $3.25 a gallon. Pretty cheap when you consider Waltham Massachusetts just hit a record $4.06 a gallon on Wednesday, May 28, 2008.
I saw the Ski Place being built on the Discovery Channel last year, they filmed the complete project. There were several challenges that the engineers had to face and it was pretty close to not happening because of these challenges.
If you haven't seen some of the photos, you can download the original email that was sent out.
