Ouray Ice Climbing Frequently Asked Questions
How do I get there?
Ouray can be reached by flying into one of several nearby locations. Montrose is the closest and most logical destination (34 miles, 40 minutes driving), Telluride, (47 miles, 1 hour), Grand Junction (96 miles, 2 hours) and Denver (300 miles, 6-7 hours). There is a shuttle service from Montrose and Telluride (Telluride Express, 1-800-800-6228). The shuttle fee is $25 a person one way, with a minimum of 3 persons. We send out a team roster 30 days in advance and encourage teaming up to share the shuttle or a rental car. We will have a vehicle available in Ouray to shuttle climbers to and from the ice climbing areas.
Where do I stay?
Participants are encouraged to stay at the Ouray Victorian Inn in town, right next to the Ice Park. Call early to confirm reservations, ESPECIALLY around the Ice Festival (MLK weekend) 1-800-84-OURAY
