Iceclimbing

Ouray is ranked as one of the most popular locations for ice climbing in the world. Not only do the surrounding mountains provide numerous spectacular ice-climbing routes, Ouray has the only ice park where over a mile of farmed ice is available to climbers right in the city limits, easily accessible and free to all who enjoy this exciting sport. With the accessibility of the Ouray Ice Park, more Ouray visitors are walking to the park and watching the climbers from the bridges and also from the stands built for this purpose along the top of the Uncompahgre Gorge. Climbers are usually in the park throughout the day but typically start early.

Hiking
Whether you call it hiking, trekking, going on a walkabout or rambling, putting your feet into motion and heading into the hills is a wonderful way to experience Ouray. Many of the trails begin in the foothills around town. All of these trails provide you with postcard perfect backdrops and awe-inspiring views. There is nothing quite like discovering tiny tundra blossoms clinging to the bottom of a rock or unearthing a quartz crystal or even gold in quartz in the trailings of an old mine. The Ouray Trails Group a local non-profit, in conjunction with the U.S. Forest Service, has developed and maintains over 76 spectacular hiking trails in the area. The region provides trails for all experience levels, ranging from easy, shorter hikes to longer and more challenging ones. 
Skiing
The San Juan mountains are known for their deep powder, extreme terrain and varied levels of adventurous trails. Whether you're interested in skiing high mountain areas accessible only by helicopter, enjoying fresh powdery slopes of new snow, or just wanting to learn on the beginner slopes, Ouray is your gateway to it all. Telluride Ski Resort offers exciting runs for skiers of all levels. With over 2,000 skiable acres 125 trails, and 18 lifts you'll find the adventure you're looking for. For advanced and expert skiers, make a reservation at Silverton Mountain, where a single lift deposits you at the top of 1,819 skiable, un-groomed acres of deep powder snow and extreme terrain that you can traverse alone or with a guide. For extreme skiers, Backcountry Skiing in the San Juans will give you the thrill of a lifetime. For a much milder ride, that the whole family will enjoy; hit Ouray's own ski hill (it even has a free towrope) or take a ride down the nearby sledding hill. 

Jeeping & ATV

Ride the high mountain cliffs and hanging mining trails with one the guides of Colorado's 4x4 Companies. Ouray has earned the much-deserved reputation as the "Jeeping Capital of the World". Jeep roads, rated from easy to difficult, traverse a variety of terrain from extreme high mountain passes and rugged winding roads to areas of spectacular wildflowers that blanket the ground throughout the spring and summer. Four-wheeling enthusiasts travel here all summer long for the breathtaking scenery and then again during the fall months for the spectacular amber colors. In fact, the world-famous Jeep® Jamboree holds its annual rally here every fall. The roads and vistas are truly spectacular.  Seasons:  May thru October
