I love this event! Went there three years in a row bitd. Bill and his team really make you feel at home. Fun people, fun climbing but don’t forget to bring your gloves.

Back in the early 1980s I went to a ice/snow fest in Traverse City Michigan. It was mainly snow mobiles and a huge city food and beer party on the frozen lake. By the time the beer tendered poured the beer from the tap and you got the cup to your mouth to drink it the top of the beer was already frozen over. It was that cold outside!

Get on up there Neebee and eat some Lake Superior whitefish with those fine folks. Tell Bill your Chappy’s sister and I’m sure he’ll buy you a beer. You may even discover that you like ice climbing!
