We hope to see you in Ouray January, 24th-27th, 2019 for the 24th Annual Ouray Ice Festival.

For three days and four nights Ouray is an absolute ice climbing mecca; ice climbers, both novice and pro travel from around the world to celebrate the growing sport of ice climbing. During daily vendor exhibitions Festival attendees have the opportunity to demo the latest ice tools, apparel, and gear from the Outdoor industries leading retailers.  Hundreds of spectators line the top of the Gorge on Saturday and Sunday to watch the world’s best ice and mixed climbing talent battle for the prize! And, with over 100 interactive and educational climbing clinics to accommodate every skill level, Festival participants are sure to have an experience to remember.

Nightly events include multimedia presentations by leading climbers, music, food, dance parties and a live and silent auction overflowing with screaming deals of the latest outdoor gear! (***see blurb below)

We are tirelessly planning for the 2019 Ouray Ice Festival, and this year may prove to be the best Festival ever! A schedule of clinics was released by San Juan Mountain Guides, the Official Concessionaire of the Ouray Ice Park.
