Segment Teaser - Beartooth Pass Wyoming-Montana

11.04.18

The Beartooth Highway is a nearly 70-mile route that winds its way through Wyoming, Montana, and into Yellowstone. Every spring the gate to Beartooth Pass is opened and die-hards make the pilgrimage to ski the snow that has accumulated through the winter. Professional skiers Michael “Bird” Shaffer and Kalen Thorien bring along everything they need to do some winter camping on the pass. Leaving the car and trailer behind, they approach their lines by motorcycle. Once on the descent, the “Bird” proves he can actually fly, and these two adventurous spirits make spring turns down the rugged peaks that envelop this classic American highway’s alpine tundra landscape.
