The 2019 UIAA Ice World Cup finals will be held in the biggest city in Colorado with over 200 climbers competing.
Denver will host the event from Feb. 22 to 24 after stops in five other countries.
Phil Powers, CEO of the American Alpine Club, said, “We are proud to support our U.S. ice climbing athletes and bring this impressive event to downtown Denver.
