I've had many kids ask about trying out ice climbing this past year. One of the best ways to be introduced to the sport is to attend the annual Cody Ice Festival over Presidents Day weekend in February. A two day, two night event, with Friday night getting all your gear sorted out, Saturday ice climbing with a guide, and a great Saturday night slideshow. The gear and guides are included in the cost, meals are extra, but usually worth it.
I have guided the past two years at the event, unsure as of yet if I will do so again this year. More information and sign-up can be found here.
