As mountain bikers, it is our nature to explore and get lost in the woods in search of the next prime stretch of singletrack. Riding in Whitefish and the surrounding Flathead Forrest of Montana, there are opportunities abound for us to fulfill this inner desire. The high ridge-lines of the Alpine Trail network provide distant views of glaciers and what felt like endless turns. Further west, strewn between the lakes region, we found untracked dirt veiled by seasons of pine needle decay. After a week exploring the region, we began to question ourselves and ponder relocation to this alcove of like-minded riders.
Yeti Cycles has based its operations in Colorado since the first mountain bike world championships way back in ’90. They may not have been born here, but they were bred here. The short film was an ode to some of the people, places, and trails that make Colorado “RAD.”
