Group Ice Climbing

All ages 12 and up

In winter, cascading waterfalls and trickling alpine flows freeze and form fantastically beautiful and surreal ice climbs. These one of a kind sculptures offer phenomenal climbing opportunities and a chance to experience a truly unique and unforgettable adventure. These climbs range in height between 30 to 100+ feet.

Given the nature of the medium, each climb forms slightly differently each year and is subject to change throughout the season, offering climbers a new experience every climb. With expansive views of Colorado’s Rockies and a chance to challenge yourself in a winter wonderland, ice climbing is a great way to spend the day in the mountains.

Group ice climbing in Vail, Colorado is a popular choice for large family outings, government agencies and ice climbing team building events. Stepping outside of your group’s circle of comfort and challenging each other climbing on the frozen ice falls of Vail, Colorado strengthens ties, increases trust in one another and creates amazing memories of the Colorado Rockies.

Great trip for an active family. We spent the day ice climbing with our awesome guide Sarah. Although it was a challenging day, Sarah kept us all safe and made sure everyone had a great climb. We were exhausted/proud/exhilarated after a great day!
