Ouray Ice Festival

I will be heading up to the festival Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday. I'm super flexible on time and plans. I want to spectate and possibly try some beginner routes. Does anyone know what the road conditions are like?

    I hope you all have a wonderful time in Ouray! Although I can't go, I'm going to see Inez Papert's presentation at the Mountaineering Center tonight (Wednesday). Maybe I'll see some of you there?

    Last call on saving $ on lodging. I'm looking to share a 2 queen room thursday, friday, saturday night at Twin Peaks. It will be about $150 for the weekend. I am canceling my reservations if I don't find anyone by tomorrow at noon.

      Jeff, at this point it looks like I will be driving up tomorrow afternoon and camping at ridgeway state park or maybe Orvis hot springs. I have gear for top roping on rock. I am assuming that the belaying method would be similar for ice. I only have webbing for setting anchors. If I can get to the base of the ice with microspikes then I will be happy to belay.

    I signed up for a class, all day on Saturday. It is a beginners class and includes all the gear you need. I don't think I can make it. Does anyone want it? i think that they can only send me a refund if I find someone to fill it. It is $100, but I would happily send you a check for $30 making the cost for you $70.

    Is anyone interested in carpooling? Being from Atlanta, I prefer not to drive. Of course I can chip in with gas.

      You can probably ride with me, where are you staying?

      January 6, 2013

    • Bird S.

      Thanks, Twin Peaks if I find a roomy. Otherwise I will be camping and driving myself. Where are you and Matt meeting?

      January 6, 2013

  • Bird S.

    I went ahead and booked a 2 queen room at Twin Peaks for $99/night from thursday - sunday. If you want to share a room it will be ~$150 for the weekend. Let me know.

    Are those beers before or after the belays?

    January 4, 2013

    • Jeff A.

      Maybe one before for a little courage and the rest after, I would be grateful for a climb or two!!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
