Don't know where you are from but here in the Springs, there is short easy ice in Cheyenne Canon. Drive up to Helen Hunt falls area. I don't know how "in" it is cause I haven't been there at all this "winter" (like we've had one here). I have done solo laps on it in the past and got bored. It's maybe 40 feet high with easy to set topropes. Easy approach too. I have never seen it crowded except for maybe 3 other people. I have seen local guides bring clients there. I think last year or the year before someone tried some ice farming up there. It made it a lot better, but I think the city made him take it down cause it was a liability(??)(someone correct me if I am wrong on this.) Hope this helps.
