The annual “Cody Ice Climbing Festival" is organized by Foote’s Mountaineering. We have been promoting
vertical ice climbing with the variety of over 300 frozen waterfalls in the south fork valley since 1997.
What once started as weekend warrior style tent camp out with spaghetti dinner, cheese cake deserts and a mini keg of cold beer in the snow at Deer Creek campground soon moved to the DDX Ranch as we organized the first annual “Waterfall Ice” Festival in 1997.
The festival has grown year after year and with 2005 guide book release “Winter Dance” by Joe Josephen the valley has tripled in popularity. The President's Day weekend event is now known as the CODY ICE CLIMBING FESTIVAL and ice climbers come to South Fork Valley from all over the world.
