A Magical Snowscape at the W Scottsdale
W Scottsdale

From 9 a.m. to 2 a.m. on December 4th, 2021, the W Scottsdale will fully transform into a dazzling Winter Wonderland dream where Arizonian desert meets magical snowscape, completely immersed into a décor straight out of a fairytale. Transforming half of its iconic pool into an ice-skating rink with artificial snow blanketing your surroundings, the hotel’s enchanted event is sure to transport you out of the Valley of the Sun and straight to North Pole. Decked with twinkling lights, the rink will welcome ice skating performances onto the ice-floor, while the Cottontail Lounge’s frosty ambiance will welcome an aerial show, and perhaps even some adorable sledge-puppies in training for that much needed holiday love… Complete with ice sculptures, a bar made entirely of ice, and a glittering ambience, the ticketed event will start out at $25, with the possibility to rent out tables and cabanas, uniquely decorated to match the hotel’s whimsical theme. From the front driveways icy decorations and the hotel’s innumerable frosted trees to the living room’s upside-down holiday tree and a giant snow globe, be prepared to step into W Scottsdale’s vortex of joyful wintery festivities.
