The Slackline.com crew will be rigging a highline or two at the Ouray Ice Festival in Ouray, Colorado during the 9th-11th of January. If you’re in the area, or planning on going to the Festival at all, be sure to come check it out. Some of the best highliners in the country will be coming by to give a highline trick demo, and we’ll have a lowline set up for spectators, first timers, and experienced slackliners to try out. We’ll be sure to post up some photos after we get back, but come see the awesomeness for yourself. The Ouray Ice Festival is a great event held every year that benefits the Ouray Ice Park, it is one of their top fundraisers.
