The Bozeman Ice Climbing Festival would not be possible without the generous commitment by the following companies. Not only do they make the best gear on the planet and make your climbing better and more enjoyable, if not save your life, they contribute an incredible amount of time and effort behind the scenes to our event and supporting Hyalite Canyon. Please support these companies and come to the Emerson Ballroom in the evenings to meet the reps, mingle with the athletes, finger some sexy gear and be a part of a life changing event.

The Spokane Mountaineers and their members have been unwavering supporters of the Bozeman Ice Climbing Festival from year one! Back in the Barrel Mountaineering days when the fest was before Thanksgiving, they would come year after year, braving thin to non-existent ice and the infamous “Hyalite Rodeo” before the road was plowed. We are proud to have them as a presenting sponsor this year.
