Cody Ice Festival

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.

Fall Wrap Up

We had 18 climbers climb at Regionals this past Saturday, and 4 climbers received invites to Nationals, Ben, Charlie, Matt McGrail, and Emma Murter. As a bonus to everyone's hard work Steepteam finished in a very, very, very close 2nd place to Team Momentun from Salt Lake. A lot of kids faced some very difficult routes and set the bar for expectations in the coming future. Regionals wraps up our Fall // Winter session, We will start up again on March 9th with a more outdoor focused agenda.
