The Ouray Ice Park is a fantastic place to climb. You can walk from many local hotels to the park. There are about 200 names routes. The new concrete anchors in the New Funtier and South Park are a huge improvement. There is a wide range of difficulties to the routes so there is something for beginners to experts. The... 更多
There's nothing in the world like it! Where else can you find yourself rappelling off an icy cliff and then climb yourself out of a steep ice canyon? The Ouray Ice Park is free thanks to local businesses and its members. If you visit consider buying the membership to help keep this attraction in action!
There aren't many (if any) better places to work on your ice climbing in the world. Sure, there will be plenty of people around, and it's not backcountry, but the volume of awesome climbing to be had with essentially no approach is hard to be. Beers and a good meal are only a few minutes away after climbing.
Don't come! It's way too dangerous! Well, that didn't work: this place is becoming VERY popular over the winter, and when you come (yes, you will) you'll see why. A team of Ice Farmers works from October until March to make sure the OIP has the highest quantity of totally _itchin' ice features to climb...in America (on darn; now I've... 更多
Twice I've been to the park and even as a novice climber it's fantastic. Hook up with a guide service, (San Juan Mountain Guides), and take in even a half day private trip. The scenery is other-worldly and a blast to be in the middle of. First rate, free public access fun.

Previous years the creek was more frozen. We had to use Park placed wood planks (2x10’s) to cross back and forth from one side to the other. Some planks looked... 更多
There is absolutely no place in the world (that I know of) that even comes close to what the Ouray Ice Park offers in the way of technical ice climbing. Just call it the 'Land of Frozen Waterfalls', all courtesy of leaking pipes many years ago and a creative group of climbers... if you want to learn to ice climb,... 更多
We had been daydreaming of going to the Ouray Ice Park for a few years now and finally made our way out for the week of New Year's. After such a wait, we were not at all disappointed. It is a stunningly beautiful area and the routes are well-crafted and well-maintained. There are plenty of options for those just getting... 更多
Having finally booked a trip to Ouray after 10 years of reading about it, we bit the bullet and travelled from Scotland. We absolutely loved our 10 day visit and managed to climb every day. The Park itself is a paradise for ice climbers and there is something for everyone from beginners to the more advanced technical climber. The Park... 更多
