Yeti SB66 Carbon Awarded

If you’ve had a chance to ride the game-changing SB66 Carbon, you’re already in on the secret:

2012 SB66C yeti

this is a serious all-mountain machine with 6-inches of amazing bump absorption, dialed geometry, and incredibly efficient pedaling performance. If you haven’t ridden one yet, you don’t have to take our word for it – check out these glowing reviews the press has been giving the 66C lately. With a weight that’s lighter than most of our competition’s 4- and 5-inch travel bikes and strength that’s on par with a freeride machine, it’s no wonder the media has been lining up for test rides.

If you’re ready for your own test ride, contact your Yeti dealer today.

This is going to be my next bike. I got the chance to demo one of these babies last summer in Colorado. It gives you great “travel” for the rough terrains and amazing agility to stay on those tight single tracks.

West Ridge Trail – Dillon Colorado

Distance: 14 miles
Rating: Moderate – More Difficult
Time: 3 Hours
Elevation: 9,240 – 11,920 ft.
Type: Out & Back, Dirt road
Season: June – October
GPS Coords: 39.601081,-105.976185


Description: Begin your ride up Keystone Gulch. The GPS Coordinates will place you at the beginning of that road. Novices will enjoy the first few miles of this well-maintained dirt road. It climbs gradually along a meandering stream and through a shady forest. Wind along the base of the ski area, pass two chairlifts. At 4.5 miles, near the third chairlift, the road veers left and begins climbing more steeply. Just after it veers right near the third chairlift at 4.5 miles and begins climbing toward North Peak, turn right onto a road near a maintenance building. Climb along a hillside for almost 0.5 miles, crossing two ski runs. At about the 5 mile mark, take a spur road on the right ( The main road dead ends further up South Peak) that drops to a meadow and crosses a stream. Climb along an abandoned logging road, which switchbacks upward. After a long flat section, you reach a 3-way junction at 6 miles. To reach West Ridge, stay left and continue climbing. Several abandoned side roads along this section may be a bit confusing. You should be able to still pick out the main route. After a switchback to the left, the road narrows and eventually becomes a single track that climbs to connect with the Colorado Trail at nearly 7 miles. Turn sharply right onto the Colorado Trail and meander along West Ridge. Anticipate a lot of other trail users on the section of the route. Use caution around blind corners. I almost took someone out on this section.At about 8 miles, you’ll reach a side trail on the right. Take this spur and descend to another logging road. Turn right for a long fun descent through a series of switchbacks. At the bottom, cross the creek, turn left onto keystone Gulch road and continue descending to your car.

Peru Creek Trail – Dillon Colorado

Distance: 14 miles
Rating: Moderate – More Difficult
Time: 3 – 4 Hours
Elevation: 10,000 – 12,120 ft.
Type: Out & Back, Dirt road
Season: Mid June – Early October
GPS Coords: 39.592/-105.871


Before You Go:

This area contains a lot of private land; so observe and respect all “NO TRESPASSING” signs. The last stretch is above timberline; the weather Peru Creek Trail changes quite rapidly.

There will be a lot of motorized vehicles; including Jeeps and ATV’s. There are a few fragile historic buildings they are on private land. Only View them from a distance.

How to Get There:

From I-70 head east on Hwy 6, passing through Keystone. Turn Right onto Montezuma Road and drive 4.5 miles. After crossing the Snake River, turn left and park at the PERU CREEK Trail head.

Ride Details:

Ride up Peru Creek Road. Cross Peru Creek and climb gradually up the left side of the valley. Pass a private residence and then the Lenawee Trail at 1.6 miles. Drop into a meadow and pass a fork on the right. Shortly after, on the left, the spur for Chihuahua Gulch appears at 2.2 miles. A steep creekside climb brings you to the timberline and into a large hillside meadow. A spur on the right leads to the crumbling Pennsylvania Mine. Continue on the main road and curve left passing the Shoe Basin Mine at mile marker 5. Beyond this point the road gets steeper and rougher, changing to the more difficult rating. Ascend past several spurs, including a fork to the right the Argentine Pass Trail. The main route remains obvious as it climbs steeply, switchbacks left and reaches a junction near the head of the basin. The the left fork and continue for another mile to a amazing pond. The road dead ends nearby at a miner’s shack. You have reached your destination. Take in the breath taking views and return the way you came.
