Here’s one Christmastime experience we haven’t tried before: The W Scottsdale Hotel has opened an ice skating rink on its roof, and the public is invited to take a spin. Here’s what you need to know before packing up the kids for an afternoon of fun or planning a swanky, wintry date night:

• Called CHILL at W Scottsdale, the festive attraction includes a 1,500-square-foot ice skating rink placed next to the heated, colorfully lit rooftop pool.

• The space is decked out with twinkling lights and decorated rink-side private cabanas. A blend of toasty and frosty specialty cocktails, plus live music performances and disc jockeys provide atmosphere.

• The fully-customized CHILL ice skating rink is composed of synthetic ice crafted from a fully recyclable polymer compound that requires no electricity, so it feels slower under the foot than refrigerated ice — kind of like skating on a real pond.

• The ice rink is open to the public and W Scottsdale guests for $10 admission. The fee includes skate rental and an hour of skating.

• A room package that includes unlimited skate rental, a rink-side cabana and free drinks is available starting at $199 per night. Ask for the Chill Out package.
