Ice Axes Aren’t Just For Your Driveway, Enter The Ouray Ice Festival

By Keith Cozzens

What’s the best way to describe ice climbing? Swollen fingers, cold, the “Elvis shaking leg” and a ton of fun! . The 2010 15th Annual Ouray Ice Festival is coming quickly, so come see for yourself. This year is packed with events. What’s more, Timmy O’Neill, expert climber and industry character, will be the Master of Ceremonies for the Saturday night dinner and Guy Lacelle (famed ice climber who died in an avalanche) Superhero theme party.

The Schedule:

Thursday night – Caroline George and Andres Marin

Friday night - Majka Burhardt and Steve House

Saturday night – Timmy Oneill hosts our evening auctions, gives a short slideshow presentation and then DJ’s our late night Guy Lacelle SuperHero theme party. There will also be a special world premier screening of the film “THE NORTH FACE”

Sunday morning – Ines Papert will speak at the AAC women’s breakfast at the Beaumont Hotel.

Sunday night – Dave Nettle wraps things up with a great slideshow presentation.

Here is a great video from a previous Ouray Ice Festival, see for yourself the unique pursuit of ice climbing and then make a trip to Ouray!
