Riyadh, the capital, is a unique mix of historic souks and contemporary towers and natural beauties. Many projects are in progress to attract visitors to GCC. Recently the news of Saudi Arabia acquiring a new mountain tourism destination came to light. Trojena will be the GCC’s first significant outdoor all-year ski resort.

It nestles in the Kingdom’s tallest mountain range. Trojena will draw tourists, vacationers, and winter sports lovers from all over the world. When it opens in 2026, here’s what to anticipate.

The Vault — a future vertical community, tucked inside the mountains will serve as the starting point for journeys to Trojena. This element is where the innovative architecture and technology integrate reality with the virtual world.
Skiers and snowboarders will be able to hover through the mountain range. They can enjoy the vistas of the Gulf of Aqaba shoreline, the Red Sea, and distant desert sands.
Trojena, the ski resort, will be home to a natural reserve, hiking paths, mountain bike trails, and water sports on a large artificial freshwater lake.
Visitors to Trojena should dress all year warmly, as the region has a lower average temperature than the vast majority of the country.
