Snow in the Desert at Marriott Starr Pass, Tucson

We just received a nice note from a colleague in Tucson who shared some fun news:

"There is a great holiday event going on next weekend at the JW Marriott Starr Pass.  This year they will hold their 3rd Annual Winter Wonderland Event Dec. 10-12.  This event is not only family friendly but brings guests and community members together for a gigantic holiday celebration.

"This year, visitors and guests will encounter a seasonal treat rarely experienced in the sunny Tucson desert…REAL SNOW!  All weekend, children and kids-at-heart can sled down snowy Starr Circle Hill, located at the resort’s main entrance." And here's the proof from last year's event!

The Marriott Starr Pass "Winter Wonderland Weekend" kicks off on Friday, December 10 with Santa Claus and his elves visiting in memorable, modern style – the Christmas crew will arrive by helicopter on the Tash Lawn. After Santa’s eagerly anticipated arrival, children can have their pictures taken with him to capture and celebrate the memory.

The festive fun continues throughout the weekend with holiday gift making in Santa’s Workshop, a firework display to rival the resort’s Christmas tree lights, and more. Most of the fun is free to guests, but some activities, such as Santa's Workshop and family portraits, involve a nominal fee.

There are some winter room packages if you're not from around these parts, and with all offers, taxes are  not included; and some blackout dates and restrictions apply. For the period covering Dec. 9 - Dec. 12, packages booked at least 7 days in advance include all of the Winter Wonderland weekend activities and a standard room for $159/N, or activities and a room with a city view for $179/N. Use promotional code ADV to reserve a room. Latecomers can get room-only rates during Winter Wonderland at $179/N for a standard room.

Through January 8, 2011 (excluding New Year’s Eve), JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort is giving guests the gift of one free night.. Families who purchase any 2 nights at $199/N and stay 3 will have the third night price taken off at checkout.  Use promotional code B4F to reserve a room. 

Reservations can be made by calling Marriott Reservations at 888-527-8989. To learn more about JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort &  Spa’s Winter Wonderland or 3-for-2 Holiday Packages, please visit
