Here's the top 10 new changes for 2017

 1. Professional Guides at Every Clinic

We've partnered with our friends at Montana Alpine Guides to ensure that our clinics are the safest and best they can be. A professional mountain guide will be setting the ropes for each clinic at CIF in 2017.

2. Gear Demos and Affordable Clinics

ALL major sponsors have retuned to the Cody Ice Fest and will be offering gear demos! Thanks to our great sponsors we are offering the least expensive full day clinics in the country at $118 and a 10% discount for active military and vets. 

3. The Highest Level of Education for Each Clinic

Each on ice clinic will be taught by a professional / sponsored ice climber. Access to top level athletes offers a truly unique opportunity for CIF participants to become better climbers. Stay tuned for our 2017 athlete lineup coming soon!

4. Shuttle to the South Fork

We're offering van / bus service from Cody to the South Fork for clinics. This will cutdown on our carbon footprint and participants can enjoy the epic beauty of the ride to the South Fork while meeting new friends and climbing partners. 

5. More Free Swag than Ever

If you love free gear as much as we do then you better be in Cody because we are giving away thousands of dollars of free gear. 

6. BBQ and Beer Garden

Every night in downtown Cody we will be grilling and offering a Trango sponsored Beer Garden for your enjoyment.  

7. World-class Speakers

Stay tuned for our announcement of key note speakers for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights!

8. Discounts for Military Vets. 

We love our vets! All military vets and active service members receive 10% off clinics. 

9. The Jack Roberts Lifetime Achievement Award

Starting in 2017 the Cody Ice Festival will be awarding annually The Jack Roberts Lifetime Achievement Award given for excellence in the mountains and contributions to alpinism. In honor of this award, Grivel will be raffling a complete ice climbing setup including tools, crampons and screws to one lucky winner on Saturday night.

10. New Management Team

Our brand new management team puts ice climbers first to champion an ice climbing event like no other on the planet. 


Stay tuned for more major announcements! We hope to see you in Cody February 10-12 2017
