Ouray For New Years

I am planning on taking a trip down to Ouray for the New Year holiday. Planning on spending a week there climbing and enjoying the hot springs and the beautiful San Juan mountains.

Planning on heading down there Wednesday the 26th and coming home the following Wed/Thur. Dates and time are flexible, looking to share a room and get some climbing in and beat the rush of the festival.

Let me know if you are interested and we can work out the detail.

Thanks for checking this out and be safe out there.

    Anyone looking for a partner for the ice park? Trying to climb both on the 31st and the 1st. I'm a master of top-roped ice climbs, but probably not quite comfortable yet to lead WI (I'll happily follow and clean though :))!

    Also, would be down for sharing a room in Ouray for the nights of the 30th and 31st. Cheers,
    Andy[masked]

I also have a room for Sat through Mon night if anyone wants to split it with me. Also if anyone is solo and has a little experience, I could use a partner so I am not three's with the group of two I am meeting down there. Choose any or all of the three options above... max(dot)a(dot)perez(at)gmail(dot)com

  • Kristi

    Hey Josh, Hillary and I are going to be there along with two of our other girlfriends. We hope to catch up with you for a tasty beverage or two.

    December 22, 2012

  • Chad

    Anyone going for 12/28 or 12/29/12-1/1/13?

    December 24, 2012

    • Joshua S.

      Chad I believe there is a car leaving that day and my return date is flexible.

      December 24, 2012

  • Joshua S.

    So as of now I have confirmation from 4 people that are coming. As of now myself and Ben are talking about leaving on the 26th or 28th. Kathy If you cant find a ride you can leave with us on the 28th. Andy also is heading down on the 30th. It looks like we have multiple people leaving on the 1st right now two cars that have space. I am going to rent a hotel the 26th once I get a better idea of a head count.

    Anyone else that is going speak up so we can can work out logistics and lodging.

    thanks Josh

    P.S. the park opened yesterday.

    December 23, 2012

    • Ben

      The link above could provide a good deal for the 30/ 31st. Their office is closed today, but we can call the 26th to see if they are available. $76 a night for four bed cabin with pullout. What do you think?

      December 23, 2012

    • Andy B.

      Still in!

      December 24, 2012

  • Kathy F.

    I can be ready to go by 3 on the 28th, maybe a little earlier if I'm lucky. But I'd hate to have you wait 2 days for me if you can be down there on the 26th...

    December 24, 2012

  • Joshua S.

    Hey all, I put up an event for Wed night so we can talk logistic and timing and get to know each other over a couple beverages.

    December 15, 2012

  • Joshua S.

    So it looks like we have 5 people (including my self) and maybe more that are interested in heading down. Seems like we have different dates and duration for everyone. Might be a good idea if we all meet for drinks somewhere and meet face to face to talk logistics. I will post a separate meet and greet for this trip once I get some feed back on what night might work for everyone. So respond to this post with dates and time to meet and we will go from there.

    Thanks all and think cold thoughts.

    FYI the park is scheduled to open on the 22nd if the weather stays cold.
