Conditions Update – March 20, 2014

By: admin

March 20, 2014

Mother Nature continues to do her part helping us keep the Park in good condition for spring ice climbing enthusiasts.  The days are long, the crowds are minimal, and the ice is blue and glassy.  Nighttime temps have been dipping well below freezing.  The Ice Farmers have been able to apply more water during certain nights this past week.

We have yet to set a closing date for the Park this season.  The Operations Committee is discussing the matter this week.  We will post the specific date as soon as a decision is made.  Until then, get your axe & gear down to Ouray.

Water levels in the canyon have been rising most afternoons.  Please maintain a high level of awareness during all times while climbing in the Park.
