CHILL, Scottsdale’s first and only outdoor hybrid ice skating rink, will transform the WET pool deck at W Scottsdale into a winter wonderland from November 16, 2012 through January 6, 2013, bringing a new level of holiday cool to Arizona’s hottest destination.

In addition to the 1,600-square-foot hybrid ice skating rink, a faux snow machine will produce falling flakes every hour, and the rink-side bar will serve specialty cocktails. Twinkling lights and private, decorated cabanas complement the festive atmosphere, with live music performances and DJs scheduled on select weekend evenings throughout the holiday season.

Adults and kids aged five and up are welcome to don a pair of skates (rental available on-site) and take to the ice Monday-Friday 4pm-12am and Saturday-Sunday 12pm-12am. The synthetic ice does not require the need for generators or electricity and is made from a recyclable, eco-friendly polymer compound. The rink feels 10-15% slower than skating on typical refrigerated ice and feels much like skating on a real frozen pond!

W Scottsdale guests will enjoy unlimited skate rentals as part of the hotel’s corresponding Chill Out room package, valid November 16, 2012-January 6, 2013. The Chill Out package starts at $239 per night and includes:

  • Accommodations in a Wonderful room for two
  • Two SIP (drink) tickets
  • Unlimited skate rental
