Ouray, Colorado

Oncology | Ice Climbing

World-class climbing terrain and exquisite views of the San Juan Mountains have led locals to refer to Ouray as the Little Switzerland of Colorado. Did we mention the Ice Park?  Come out to this winter wonderland to take a swing at ice climbing, bask in the nearby hot springs, and cozy up with delicious meals at the lodge with your new FD community!

This frozen playground makes Ouray one of FD’s most epic, unique, and exciting climbing programs.
