Get Involved!

Thank you to all the Volunteers at the 2019 Ouray Ice Festival! Check back in Fall to see the sign-ups go live for the 2020 Ouray Ice Fest!

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


We couldn't put on the Ice Fest without wonderful and hardworking volunteers like you! THANK YOU!

All volunteers (that complete their shift) will receive some swag from The North Face, our Volunteer Apparel Sponsor.
