All the ice festivals have clinics suited to fit any aspect of the sport you desire to learn more of or try for the first time. Taught by local guides, these folks are not just good, they teach climbing the way it should be, FUN. If you’re not there for the clinics, visit the many excellent sponsors and check out some new gear.
Also the evenings have great food, dry tool comps, slideshows and are great way to meet new people and reconnect with old friends.
