ADULTS- you will also be able to try out the latest gear from our incredible sponsors!  Depending on ice conditions our guides will pre set 12-15 ropes for climber to come out and test the gear and their skills. To check out demo gear you do have to pay the demo fee when you register for Ice Fest. To check out demo gear at headquarters,  you do have to pay the demo fee when you register for Ice Fest.

You will also have the opportunity to learn from some of the world’s best climbers as they will be on-hand to provide tips and advice.

*If you have your own helmet and harness, bring them if you want to avoid having to waiting.

*Please do not set personal ropes up on the Curtains. If you are looking for a place to climb please ask one of our staff for the beta

*Please don’t go to the top of the climbs to take photos

*Be sure to grab a hot drink from YETI before you hit the shuttle to the demo!

There will be a protected area roped off.  We ask that climbers and belayers be in this area only. Helmets must be worn while climbing or belaying in the roped off area!!!
