ICE Climbing in Ouray

Ouray is home to North America's premier ice climbing routes. Ouray Riverside Resort and Ouray RV Park & Cabins are community sponsors of the Ouray Ice Park. In the winter months, climbers come from all over the world to experience the climbing in the Uncompaghre River Gorge. Each January, Ouray is home to the Ouray Ice Festival, where you'll see the world's finest alpinists gathering compete, put on clinics and demonstrations, and pass on their knowledge. 

The Ouray Ice Park has over three miles of vertical climbing terrain in the gorge, with routes from easy to expert. There's no charge to individuals climbing Ouray's ice. They're dependent on community support. A great way to be a friend of the ice is to become a Ouray Ice Park member. We love our ice climbing friends and offer substantial discounts to those who have invested in an Ice Park membership. You'll help care for the ice and keep the park going.

Pro Tip: Book a hotel room, suite, cabin or RV site, and purchase a 2022 ice park membership, and Ouray Riverside Resort will give you a whopping 20% off your entire reservation (Winter Season Reservations only)! In many cases, this will save you more than the cost of the ice park membership, and you'll be a friend of the ice in the process. 


The small rustic cabin we stayed in was perfectly clean and cozy. We stayed nice and warm on a cold night in the 30's. The restrooms were also kept nice and clean. We stayed right on the river and had a gorgeous view of the mountains. And just down the road there is a hot spring pool to visit. Can't beat it! We will be back to Ouray riverside resort again without a doubt.

Absolutely an excellent stay! The Rustic cabins was clean and very cozy. The River being just outside your door made you want to really immerse yourself in Ouray. The facilities are very clean. Definitely will be back!

For the past 10 years this has been my spot to stay when visiting ouray. They have consistently had the best prices in town and have high quality lodging! They're remodeling has definitely been an improvement on an already great location. My only suggestion would be to include a microwave in the hotel rooms, but other than that they have everything you need for an awesome stay in ouray!
