Private trips provide flexibility and one-on-one instruction to help you maximize the benefit of your time under guided instruction. There is no better place on earth to learn or progress your ice climbing skills than in the Ouray Ice Park. Whether you’ve never put on a pair of crampons before or are a WI5 climber looking to hone your skills and prepare for routes such as Bridalveil Falls, we have patient, professional guides who’ve dedicated their lives to sharing their passion for the mountains with you!

Private trips are fully customizable, whether it’s for one person or your group of friends. Want a custom built learn-to-lead course? We'll set that up for you. Just looking for a fun day of climbing? Great! Do you have a checklist of skills and techniques you’re looking to learn? Our guides will systematically work through your goals, maximizing the value out of your day.

Our standard meeting time is 7:30am for gear fitting, but we do have flexibility because this is your private day. You can establish an exact meeting time that works for you with your guide for the day.
