Conditions at the Ouray Ice Park
December 17, 2014
After a freakish warm spell here in Ouray we finally have normal cold temps and we are cranking out the ice in the Park. While conditions in the Ouray backcountry have been awesome we have been challenged to make much happen in the Uncompahgre Gorge but Mother Nature is working with us now. We just need a good string of consistently cold overnight temperatures to get the Park where we need it for a long and sustainable season.
We don’t have a target date for opening the Park but our ice farmers are working hard. A good string of cold temps will get us there. Stay tuned for more updates.
