Conditions at the Ouray Ice Park

2014/2015 Preseason

January 1, 2015

January 1 conditions update: The Ouray Ice Park is open!!! We have a few areas in the Park that remain closed and each of them are well marked. Please stay out of these areas until we have them ready to go. Closed areas include Five Fingers, Grad School and the section between the Lower Bridge and Popsicle. Most of these areas include pillars that need just a little more love before they are ready for the long season ahead.

Please remember that the Ouray Ice Park is open from 7:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Please do not try to setup anchors before 7:30 a.m. This is a critical time in our ice farming process when our farmers are moving quickly to get the system shut down for the day. Being in the Park before 7:30 presents a safety hazard for both you and our hard working ice farmers.
