Yeti sweeps up at Blast the Mass

Yeti had a great result at Snowmass, videographer John Reynolds was on hand to scoop it up. (Do they get massive snow at Snowmass? The vid looks hot and dusty to me, but, it is summertime so maybe it should be called Dustmass, or how about Christmass in the winter?)
