Ice climbers in Ouray Ice Park

It's Ice Time

The Ice season is in full swing and the Ice Fest is now a memory.  There were lots of great moments to remember though. There was the energy and excitement of the competition (won by Nathan Kutcher in the men’s division and Emily Harrington in the women’s division) and the amazing skill of the ice carver who kept going despite the chaos around him to create a fairytale castle, complete with moat, steam train, amid a sea of mountains and other neat stuff.

There was new gear to examine and try out. There were presentations from climbers who had been in very high places that most people have never heard about (think 20,000 foot peaks in Pakistan), and lots of parties and lots and lots of beer.

But now it is time to think about more than ice climbing, we have downhill skiing and snowmobiling, we have cross country skiing and snowshoeing. What we do not have is snow.

We need snow. Lots of snow.

We need it so non-ice climbers have something to do in winter. We need it so the mountains can continue to look gorgeous. We need it so next summer we have enough water in the rivers and reservoirs for drinking, irrigating, and playing.

So Think Snow. Do a Snow Dance, Sing Snow songs.  Have a Snow Fest.

Snow dance steps from Yahoo Answers

1. Turn your pajamas inside out and put them on.
2. Then gather white beads and a couple pieces of white paper.
3. When that is done, rip up the paper into small pieces.
4. Then turn your music on real loud and dance until you get tired.
5. While you dance, throw the paper and beads around your room. it symbolizes snow.
6. When you are so tired that you can’t dance or throw the paper and beads around any longer. pick up the beads and pieces of paper put them in the under side of your pillow case and go to sleep.
As an option you may yell “Snow” 3 times into your freezer at any point in the dance.
