If you’re on the lookout for a healthy adrenaline rush to get you out of the house and into the great outdoors, we have just the ticket. The Lake City Ice Climbing Festival is lifting Coloradans to new heights!

Imagine standing before a massive rock face, covered in an unforgiving, vertical sheet of blue ice. Now imagine scaling it. Sounds crazy, doesn’t it? For those who get a thrill out of climbing against the odds (and against gravity), competing in Lake City’s Ice Climbing Festival is like a late Christmas present. So why not come and watch them! Every year in early February, climbers of all ages and abilities compete against nature and each other for prizes in lead and top rope categories for men and women and for the pride of having accomplished such a feat. 

The Lake City Ice Climbing Festival serves as an annual fundraiser for Lake City Ice Climbs, Inc.-- a non-profit organization that aims to provide a unique climbing experience at the Lake City Ice Park–with all entry fees benefitting the park. Stay with us at Cheyenne Mountain Resort while you’re in town for the event and let us show you some of our favorite breweries, eateries, trails, and shopping destinations.
