10 Adrenaline-Pumping Winter Vacations

Cold-weather trips for snow sports junkies—just because it’s freezing outside doesn’t mean you have to put your adventure on hold.
Home to the annual Ouray Ice Festival, Ouray’s Ice Park attracts top ice climbers from around the world. Developed on a one-mile stretch of the Uncompahgre Gorge, the park boasts over 200 climbing routes and more than three vertical miles of terrain. Advanced ice climbers can climb free at their leisure, while beginners can sign up for a two-day Intro to Ice Climbing course with San Juan Mountain Guides. Gradually move to steeper routes as guides teach you proper technique, gear use, and decision making ($395, includes ice equipment; ourayclimbing.com)
