It’s that time!  The Ouray Ice Festival, the biggest, baddest, most amazing ice festival on planet earth happens this weekend. Furnace Industries is proud to return as a sponsor.  We have the tool that has everyone in the ice community talking, awesome prizes for our annual pull-up contest, and our flagship product that has completely changed the game in training for ice.

If being in beautiful Ouray, Colorado wasn’t awesome enough, here are 3 more reasons to swing by the Furance Industries booth this weekend:

1. The Kronos

It’s gorgeous, reduces vibration, keeps your hands warmer and of course climbs amazingly. The Kronos offers features no other tool can, and YES, we will have them available to demo. This is a big deal. Why? No other wood ice tool in history has achieved the 'T' rating. The KRONOS is the first. Don’t know what a ’T’ rating is? You should, our lives depend on it.

2. The Annual DRY ICE Tools Pull-up Contest!

It's open to any man/woman/child/bighorn sheep/space alien. The winner will be whoever knocks out the most pull-ups over two days. The contest is cumulative, starts on Friday at 8 a.m. and finishes on Saturday at 4 p.m.  Climbers can pop in, crank out 10, head out climbing, swing back, crank out 10 more, go have a beer, crank out 10 more... Last year, our comp brought out some big guns at Ouray. Devon Stratton won with 910 pullups! Devon won a sweet Grivel Zen 35 Backpack.  This year the prize is the top-of-the-line Maxim Rope , the 9.1 x 60m 2X Dry Bi-Pattern Airliner Torch. That's a $349 prize folks. Get excited for this pull-up THROWDOWN!

3. DRY ICE Tools

Our original product continues to change the game in large part to a fan base that understands that training in the off-season, even a small amount, leads to big results in strength, muscle memory, and confidence.  They also appreciate well-crafted, excellently-designed products.  Many climbing gyms now own their own DRY ICE Tools as well as our ICICLES and offer clinics to members on ice climbing movement.

Do not miss this!  Get down to Ouray and check us out.  We also have some other new surprises, hats to win, along with our usual pithy and humorous sticker selection to decorate your helmet/car/water bottle/wind deflector/friend's forehead when they're sleeping...
