Ouray Ice Festival

Ouray Ice Festival

January
The Ouray Ice Festival is an ice-climbing competition and exposition held annually in January in Ouray, Colo. In addition to the main contest, which tests ice-climbers' skill and speed, competitions are held for such feats as axe-throwing and tight-rope walking across a gorge. Also on offer are manufacturers' displays of specialty equipment, film and slide-show presentations, and a climbing wall for children. Anyone can register to compete.
The first Ouray Ice Festival was held in January 1996, promoted by Jeff Lowe, an ice-climbing pioneer.
