Lake City Ice Festival

The Lake City Ice Festival is a great little event. They have about 15 climbs set up, a speed climb competition (lead and TR), and thousands of dollars in prizes. The people in Lake City are also super nice.

    Hi All,

    I talked with someone at the visitors bureau who said there may be some dispersed camping near the ice wall. Go down County Road 20, pass the wall and go another .25 mile. There will be a lefthand turn toward the bluff, and the camping will be around there. There is a fence that follows a hiking path. Across the street is a flat ATV staging area that might also be a good place to put up a tent.

    Additionally, people at Packers Saloon or Restless Spirits can also point you to a tent site, she said.

    I'm headed down tonight from Lakewood and would love to meet up with you guys.

    I'll be staying through Sunday. You can reach me at[masked] or [masked]

    Rick -- Where are you thinking of camping? I've never been to Lake City, so I don't know anything about what the options are. Any place close to town/the ice park?

    I don't mind Lake City, but I'd like to see us meet up at Lincoln Falls again soon. I'm a newbie to the group, so I shouldn't be so bold. Also planning another trip to Ouray in March as well as to New Hampshire. Hope to meet you all soon.

    I will be going with a school trip and we have booked out Raven's Rest Hostel. There are several other places to stay though. I hope to meet up with all of you there on Saturday.
