Get Involved!

The Ouray Ice Festival would not be successful without the support and dedication of our volunteers!  We rely on the hard work and dedication of nearly 200 volunteers to transform Ouray into an ice climbing mecca over the three days of the Ouray Ice Festival.

Volunteering for the Ice Fest is fun and rewarding, but sometimes it’s a little cold… and snowy… and icy!!! But then again it’s an ice festival, what else would you expect?!

Volunteers should also be prepared to work in an outdoor environment: hats, gloves, warm jacket, warm pants, snow boots etc.

Sorry, we do not provide lodging accommodations for volunteers

Volunteer positions for the 2017 Ice Festival will be posted in early December 2016.
