Enjoy cool summer savings and plenty of freezing family fun this summer with The Westin Kierland Resort & Spa’s Big Chill Package, which offers a choice of package options – a $50 per room, per night dining credit or two free sessions on the Kierland FlowRider wave simulator.

The Big Chill Package will be available from May 30 through Sept. 5, 2016. Rates in May, June and July start from $169 per room, per night and from $149 per room, per night in August and September.

On Memorial Day Weekend, the Resort will celebrate the first “wintery” blast of summer with eight tons of snow, 1,000 pounds of ice and a synthetic ice rink. Activities for Resort guests will include:

  • The Whiteout – The Resort will host a mid-morning snowfall with eight tons of snow for kids of all ages to enjoy on Saturday, May 28 and Sunday, May 29.
  • The Polar Plunge – Temperatures will drop at the Adventure Pool as 1,000 pounds of ice are dropped into the pool on Saturday and Sunday afternoon.
  • The Glacier Glide – On the evenings of Friday, May 27 and Saturday, May 28, guests can enjoy a cool spin around the Resort’s synthetic ice rink overlooking the golf course.
  • The Splish Splash – From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, May 28 and Sunday, May 29, the Resort will offer its own inflatable water park with slides of various sizes for all ages including a 24-foot tall “Super” water slide. (The Glacier Glide and Splish Splash will be available for an additional charge.)

The fun continues with activities such as the frozen t-shirt obstacle course and water limbo, Jack’s Smokin’ BBQ on Friday and Saturday evening, poolside games and s’mores. As always, guests can also cool off surfing and bodyboarding on the Kierland FlowRider wave simulator, in the 900-foot-long lazy river and on a 110-foot waterslide – all at the Resort’s Adventure Water Park.

Every day throughout the summer, The Westin Kierland’s own FUN Team will lead thrill- and chill-seeking adventurers in a wide range of wintery-themed activities perfect for escaping the summer temps. And, the frosty fun steps up every weekend: each Saturday afternoon, the Resort hosts the Polar Plunge as hundreds of pounds of ice are dropped into the pool and a DJ spins his cool tunes at the Friday and Saturday night Pool Parties featuring Smokin’ Jack’s BBQ. Plus, guests can “Surf Into the Sunset’ with discounted pricing on Kierland FlowRider.
