The Bozeman Ice Festival® presented by Black Diamond is proud to present:
The UIAA Bozeman World Cup Opening Ceremonies featuring a native dance and the Bear Canyon Singers welcomes over 60 of the top ice climbers from around the world to the stage at the Emerson Crawford Theater. Welcome them to Bozeman as these Olympic-caliber athletes embark on a journey that will take them around the world, starting right here in Bozeman at the first World Cup of the 2015/16 season.
Followed by a very special guest Jeff Lowe. Last in Bozeman in 2011, we honored Jeff as part of our 40th Anniversary of ice climbing in Hyalite Canyon, we are excited to have Jeff back for the Bozeman premier of Jeff Lowe’s Metanoia. This extraordinary documentary chronicles Jeff’s life from the top of the world to the end of the line as he embraces a debilitating disease with the same vision, courage and grace that he brought to his climbing.
A Q and A and opportunities to meet Jeff to follow.
Come early to the Emerson Ballroom and enjoy the Bozeman Ice Festival presented by Black Diamond with food by the Emerson Grill, our new BIF Beer Rotator with micro-brews from a local brewery in a special commemorative pint glass, gear raffles and demos from our sponsors and athletes from around the world.
