We believe in creating a community for women, non-binary and trans climbers and skiers to learn and grow together in the mountains.​ IRIS (Inclusive Rock Ice Ski) provides the people and programming for all to feel confident in themselves, comfortable with their partners, and competent at their sport.

Our Roots as Chicks

Learn about Chicks Climbing and Skiing, the rich foundation upon which IRIS is built.

The IRIS Community

Community-centered programming to help women, non-binary and trans climbers and skiers become their most competent and confident selves.
