Outdoor Ice Wall

Spring Break

The tower will be open Saturday (3/11), Wednesday (3/15) and Thursday (3/16) at regular hours, but NOT Friday (3/17) or Saturday (3/18).


Ice Tower Open!

Please note: Our cutoff temperature is -20F. If it is -20F, or colder, we will NOT be open.
(We go off the temperature at the airport). 

Our Hours are:

Wednesday-Friday 4pm-8pm

Saturday Noon-4pm 

Beginners & experts are ALL welcome! We love teaching people and look forward to introducing you to the sport!

**We reccommend children be at least 10 years of age or older to ice climb due to the weight and nature of the equipment. 


All necessary equipment is included in the climbing fees and available for your use!  We have a full run of double plastic mountaineering boots, crampons, ice tools, harnesses, and helmets.


*If you have a group of more than 5 people we ask that you set up a rental time outside of our public hours. Find rental information here.
