guided ice climbing

Ouray Ice Park 3-Day Clinic: January 2-6, 2020

Immerse yourself in three days of guided ice climbing, so you’ll have plenty of time to refine your swing and learn new techniques. There are five levels to choose from, so it’s perfect for beginners, intermediate and advanced climbers alike. Over the duration of the guided ice climbing program, you will go to several different areas within the Ouray Ice Park allowing you to sample some of the best ice climbing in the country.

You will stay at the Victorian Inn, just a short walk from the Ouray Ice Park. After a fun day out in the park, enjoy a soak in the hot tub at the hotel or in the nearby natural hot springs in town. Every evening you will sit down to a family-style dinner catered by Sarah at the Secret Garden Bed & Breakfast. Her delicious home cooking could give any celebrity chef a run for their money.
