YETI Launches Its First International Outdoor Adventure Film Tour

This week, YETI launched its 12-city film tour with a kickoff screening in Denver during Outdoor Retailer. Lucky for us, there’s more.

YETI, the outdoor cooler and drinkware brand, announced its first-ever international film tour this week. The film tour consists of a collection of unreleased short and long films, showcasing everything from angling to hiking, skiing, and more. The first film in the series, “Ridge of Dreams,” is available now.

YETI released its first film in 2015 and held its first film tour in 2016. But this year, the brand takes its films international.
