  1. Saudi Arabia’s megaproject NEOM will be subject to the regulations of the Kingdom, despite having separate economic legislation, an official source told the Saudi Press Agency.

    The statement on Monday came in response to NEOM’s head of tourism Andrew McAvoy’s comments to local press at the Arabian Travel Market in Dubai, where he suggested that the sale of alcohol had not been ruled out.

    Residents of NEOM will also not be classified differently than people living in other parts of the Kingdom, SPA reported.

    Officials have in the past hinted that the sale of alcohol could be permitted in the planned city.

    A unnamed senior official told AFP in October 2021 that the “delicate” issue was being considered.

    NEOM's Trojena ski resort is planning to open in 2026:

    Last month, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman unveiled plans for Trojena, the Gulf region’s first-ever outdoor ski resort, which, unlike the Alps of Europe, can be reached by almost 40 percent of the world’s population within four hours. The site, which will feature sporting events, art exhibitions, concerts and cultural festivals, is expected to attract 700,000 visitors and 7,000 permanent residents by 2030. Planners say the project is due for completion by 2026.

    And one more breathtaking teaser of Trojena:

    The construction village is really coming along. There's clearly a lot more traffic around the area now and infrastructure going in around the main residential areas.






  4. These NEOM artwork teasers remind me of Dubai back in 2006, when the Palm Jumeirah, Palm Jebel Ali, Palm Deira, The World and Dubai Waterfront islands were built at the same time, and off-plan villas sold on them.

    As in Dubai, I bet only 10%-20% of what we see right now will actually come to fruition.

    NEOM Company announced on Wednesday that Rayan bin Mohammed Fayez has joined the top management team at NEOM.

    The company has experienced rapid growth and expansion since it started its delivery phase early last year, as the company spent the period prior to that focusing on preparing the detailed strategies for all sectors and projects.

    Nadhmi Al-Nasr, CEO of NEOM, said: “NEOM is growing rapidly and development is happening very fast, as we work around the clock to deliver on all projects, especially after the launches of THE LINE, OXAGON and recently TROJENA. This requires sourcing more expert talent at all levels, including for the top management team, where all will collaborate to achieve NEOM’s vision, and to contribute to creating a better future for our coming generations”.

    “NEOM decided to appoint Mr. Fayez as Deputy CEO, and his start date will be early next June,” Al-Nasr added.
    Fayez is currently the Managing Director and CEO of Banque Saudi Fransi. He previously held the role of CEO of Savola Group. He sits on the boards of King Salman Park Foundation, Sports Boulevard Foundation and Alula Development Company among other boards and committees he serves.

    This is from a previous article mentioned earlier in the thread...

    While average temperatures around the year remain around 10 degree Celsius lower than other cities in the country, its winter temperatures drop below zero. Located at approximately 2,600 meters above sea level, outdoor skiing will be a unique feature of Trojena which is positioning itself as the GCC’s first outdoor skiing destination.
    But even with winter temperatures below zero, it is likely to be something other than "genuine" or even artificially created snow made from water. It's likely to be a fully artificial substance with a layer of artificially water created snow to cover the top much like they do to extend the season in other ski resorts around the world.

  8. How will they get snow into these desert mountains?
