Our annual Ouray Ice Festival, spanning three days and four nights every January, transforms the town of Ouray into an ice climbing mecca. Ice climbers, both novice and pro, travel from around the world to celebrate the growing sport of ice climbing. During the day, Festival attendees have the opportunity to demo the latest ice tools, apparel, and gear from the outdoor industry’s leading retailers at our Vendor Village. At the top of the Gorge, hundreds of spectators line up to watch the world’s best ice and mixed climbing talent battle for the prize in both Elite Mixed and Speed Climbing competitions. And, with over 100 interactive and educational climbing clinics to accommodate every skill level, Festival participants are sure to have an experience to remember. At night, various venues open their doors to host multimedia presentations by leading climbers with music, dance parties, and auctions overflowing with screaming deals on the latest outdoor gear!
The best part? Every dollar made during our annual Ouray Ice Festival goes directly to funding the operational costs of the Ouray Ice Park so we can continue to build a world-class ice climbing park every year!
