Conditions Report – February 15, 2014

By: admin


The temps are warm but the Park is fat!  All areas of the Park remain open for climbing.  We are starting to see just a few localized closures of individual routes.  This is primarily a preventative measure to preserve terrain.  The forecast calls for temps to return to normal next week.  Ice Farmers will work hard to make new ice once the temps drop.  In the mean time we ask guests to avoid pillars and any free hanging curtains.

Access is generally good throughout the Park but as always please use caution in all canyon access points and in all places at the bottom of the gorge.

Stay tuned here and through our social media sites for the latest Ouray Ice Park condition updates.  We will do our best to make daily Twitter updates about what is happening in the gorge (see below).
