Upcoming Events in Ouray, Montrose and Telluride!

Thursday, January 21st, 2010

The Ouray Ice Festival has come and gone for another year, but that doesn’t mean the action is all quiet here in the San Juans. There’s a whole list of upcoming events for you, your family and friends to take part in. Something for everyone and at every altitude. Check out what’s on the slate:

Monday, January 25 at 7:00 PM
Ouray Community Center ($5 admission)
Slide Show and Live Auction – sponsored by Chicks Climbing/Chicks With Picks

ICEFALL BROOKE: a journey into the Canadian wilderness with four women putting up new routes in the unexplored Icefall Brooke canyon.

In March 2006, Caroline George flew into the remote Icefall Brooke Cirque with fellow ice climber-esses Ines Papert, Audrey Gariepy and Jen Olsen and photographer Jon Walsh. Throughout the ten days spent in this pristine valley 90kms north of Golden, BC, the team put up 10 new routes, all rated between WI5 and M12! Each day, they would set out to climb line after line of hard ice, only to return late at night to the comfort of their winter shelter. Ever wondered what could motivate a team of girls to go rough it in the heart of the cold winter? What is the point in doing first ascents? Come and find out! Auction proceeds will benefit women’s charities in the San Juans.

STORIES OF AN ALPINE PRINCESS – Experience the stories of an Alpine Princess through the eyes of professional climber and Patagonia ambassador, Zoe Hart. She will take us on a photographic odyssey across the globe going from one storied alpine climb to another, often in the harshest of conditions, through the most colorful of cultures and landscapes.

Based in Chamonix, France, Zoe Hart takes advantage of conditions as they present themselves – ski mountaineering, alpine climbing, or rock climbing – when she’s not working as a mountain guide. Zoe is labeled as a perpetual transient – she hasn’t lived in the same place for more than three months over the past eight years – finding the call to travel and explore the mountains of the world too alluring to stand still. Hart is also the fourth American woman to earn her IFMGA, or International Federation of Mountain Guides Associations, status. This is the highest level of credential available to a professional mountain guide anywhere in the world and is recognized in over 20 IFMGA member countries.
