Blue ice clings to canyon walls, creating a colorful contrast to the steep rock faces of Hyalite Canyon. Climbers inch their way up the frozen surface with axes and crampons, many having traveled from around the world to experience this world class venue.
Now embarking on its seventeenth season, the Bozeman Ice Festival continues to attract climbers of all abilities to Hyalite Canyon. This festival showcases the best of what ice climbing in Southwestern Montana has to offer. The climbing clinics, gear demos and live entertainment, including the UIAA North American Championships, make this a world class event.
