2023 Yeti Gathering - Rico

Yeti Gathering Returns

The 2024 Yeti Gathering will take place in the shadow of the Collegiate Peaks and we’re excited to be bringing our loyal Yeti Freaks down to one of our favorite mountain towns.

You have two days of riding this year, both offering beautiful views of 3 Colorado mountain ranges. Friday’s ride is a classic Salida loop that includes classic Colorado singletrack. Saturday includes two ride options. The Intermediate ride shares most of its route with the Advanced ride, but cuts out the top portion of the climb so you can save your legs for the minibike races Saturday evening. E-Bikes are not allowed on either of this year's gathering routes, however there are some great e-legal trails that can be ridden from camp.

We are back on the grid this year

The last few years, we have been proud to show our Yeti Freaks a few corners of Colorado you’ve probably never seen. You roughed it and we all had fun. This year, we’re back on grid and base camp will be the Chaffee County Fairgrounds. Despite the addition of running water, camping is still heavily encouraged, but we will have RV hookups (for an additional fee) and Airbnb’s, hotels and rentals will be readily available if you choose. 

Whether you camp or find accommodations, be prepared for a wide variety of weather. We also recommend sunscreen and a wide variety of layers as temperatures in the mountains can swing wildly from blazing hot to freezing throughout the day if a storm rolls in. Appropriate gear will make you much more comfortable and keep you safe through the weekend. 

We won’t be as high in the mountains as years past, but Salida is still situated around 7000 ft above sea level. Drink plenty of water and come trained and prepared, we promise you will have more fun.


We will have ride leaders and sweeps, including an EMS support on each of our rides, who will be equipped with first aid and GPS communicators. However, please remember that rescues in the mountains can be complicated and slow, so we encourage everyone to please ride within their limits. Also, even though we're providing support, please plan on being self-sufficient and prepared to navigate and finish the ride as you would if you were out on your own.


You must have a Yeti to attend Yeti Gathering. Please make sure your bike is dialed and ready. Nobody wants to be that "guy" on the group ride that hits the first descent just to find out your brakes are cooked. We highly recommend you or your local shop service your bike and equipment in preparation for the event. A clean and properly tuned bike will ensure more miles of shred-induced smiles.

Personal Locators & Trackers

We will be in and out of cell service. If you have a personal locator like a Garmin InReach, it would be a great idea to bring it along.

Colorado Search and Rescue Fund

The dedicated volunteer search and rescue (SAR) professionals across Colorado are ready to mobilize to help those in the Colorado backcountry. Our Colorado Outdoor Recreation Search and Rescue (CORSAR) contribution supplies reimbursements to SAR teams for costs incurred while conducting search and rescue operations. It provides funding for the purchase of search and rescue-related equipment. Because of your support and the tremendous generosity of our search and rescue responders, Colorado is a safer place to play.

Read more about how this program works. It’s $3 for a year and $12 for a 5-year card:https://cdola.colorado.gov/funding-programs/search-and-rescue-fund

Wildlife & Dogs

Be aware respect that we'll be sharing the area with moose, bears, deer and plenty of other wildlife. If you choose to bring your dog, it must be on a leash and well-behaved.
