Ice climbing just got a little less hairy. Set on a 100-foot cliff wall a mere five-minute walk from Wyoming's Grand Targhee resort, the new Teton Ice Park offers rookies a controlled atmosphere for learning to wield an ax. A system of low-flow showerheads douses the wall all day long, ensuring stable conditions, and guides with Victor, Idaho–based Aerial Boundaries teach the basics. Private guiding from $105; tetonice.com
