San Juan Ice Conditions
Ouray, Silverton, and Telluride Ice
We take pride in staying current on Ouray Ice Conditions and for all major ice climbs in the Ouray, Silverton, and Telluride areas. Check back often for updates, pictures, and trip reports!
Despite a dry start to Winter, the ice climbs are either forming and/or already in! Temperatures are quite low during the night and not super warm during the day which helps tremendously for the ice to form. The extended forecast is looking super good and cold!!
As always, be safe out there and watch the winds and avalanche hazard (click here for CAIC North San Juan forecast) carefully as they relate to your plans for ice climbing.
