Ice Climbing

Imagine scaling a frozen waterfall with ice picks in hand and spiked, crampon boots on feet. It’s the ultimate winter adventure for thrill seekers – and something you can check off your bucket list in Wyoming. Northern Wyoming is home to one of the largest frozen waterfalls in the lower 48, making it one of the best ice climbing destinations in the country. From November through April, the South Fork Valley near Cody offers world-class ice climbing with stunning views – and is just 50 miles from Yellowstone National Park. Each February the Cody Ice Festival takes place in this valley, giving climbers of all ages and experience levels the chance to learn how to ice climb, hone their skills and climb with world-class instructors. Wyoming ice climbing can also be found at Lake Louise near Dubois, on Fremont Lake near Pinedale and at the man-made Teton Ice Park at Jackson’s Snow King Resort.
