The Ouray Ice Park is a human made ice climbing venue operated in a spectacular natural gorge within walking distance of the City of Ouray, Colorado. It is home to more than 200 named ice and mixed climbs, most within a 15-minute walk of the Park entrance. The Park and its infrastructure are jointly owned and managed by the City of Ouray, the nonprofit Ouray Ice Park, Inc. (OIPI), and a mix of other private and public landowners.

park update 03/20/2019
We are now in the last few weeks of our season and we still have good ice and climbable terrain open. Still open are the Schoolroom, The Trestle, The Kid’s Wall, The Upper Bridge Area, and the Lead Only Area. Despite the avalanche conditions causing the closure of Highway 550 to the South of Ouray for those coming from the Durango area, Ouray is still relatively easy to get to from the North corridor and from where most of our travelers arrive from anyway. Ouray and the Ice Park are still open for business!
For open and closed areas please visit Ourayicepark.com/conditions-1
With mid March upon us the Park will soon be wrapping up another banner season with 90 days open so far and if we can make it to our Target Closing Day, March 31st, which is looking promising, we’ll be at 106 days!
Regular Hours of operation are Monday - Friday from 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. and Saturday - Sunday from 7:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
For updated conditions please visit the conditions page updated on 3/15/19 or follow us on Facebook & Instagram.
