February 21, 2014 – FEM FEST Weekend!
Mother Nature has re-joined the Team to produce very favorable conditions for faming ice. Dan and the crew were able to clear most of the snow from our recent storm and make ice last night. The Kid’s Wall has totally transformed overnight. We were able to run water through most of the Park and will continue to do so through the weekend. The forecast looks perfect for our efforts, warm days and clear cold nights.
We hope to see everyone out this weekend as the Ice Park and Ouray Mountain Sports present the 2nd Annual Fem Fest. Women climbing with women all weekend. The entire Park remains open to all climbers, so don’t forget to bring the man. Tonight at the Community Center, Janelle Smiley will deliver a spectacular slide show. There will also be a silent auction & beer/ wine at the bar. Doors open at 6:30.
Saturday evening at the Community Center will feature the Fashion Show, Climbing Betty Makeover, as well as live & silent auctions. This is one evening you don’t want to miss! Doors open at 6:00.
Both evenings will feature locally crafted beer from Ouray Brewery. The generous folks from Ouray Brewery continue to be huge supporters of Ice Park events. Gluten free? The bar will also have vino available.
