      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Ouray Ice Park News

Recommended Posts

Dear Friends of Ice Climbing:


The 11th annual Ouray Ice Festival was a huge success. From clinics to a

field of international competitors, the weekend provided all who came with

much to take home. Next year’s festival is already in the works, with many

positive ideas being explored. We look forward to seeing you at that fest

in January 2007


We are proud to announce that Bill Whitt will take over the reigns as

president of the Ice Park and Ice Festival Board of Directors. Bill has

been around since the park’s inception. He is the owner of the Victorian

Inn, one of our yearly Ice Park sponsors.


Bill will be working with a revamped board in the coming year. The board

plans to make improvements to both the park and festival infrastructures.

If you have an ideas or comments for the board, please let them know. Our

e-mail is oipi@ouraynet.com


Cold temperatures have kept our ice farmers Rob and Malcolm busy. The ice

has been great through February and we have continued re-hydration. If

cold weather patterns hold, we are looking at another 4 weeks of climbing.

Please be sure to check conditions before making any major plans to ice

climb at the park during March.


From the ice side, (still love sticking my tongue to it)


Erin Eddy

Executive Director

Was at the park 3/10-3/14 (other than a side trip to Telluride on Monday) Ice conditions were awesome with cold temps and snow flurries. The park was about 80% fat, also got up Camp Bird Mine road for some climbing at Skylight. Ouray rocks!
