Question about Yeti mountain bike

Thought I'd start by asking here. My son is looking to buy a mountain bike. He lives in Denver and is leaning towards a Yeti full suspension bike with good components. When he was younger and still lived with us, he was a pretty good trail rider. Last mtn bike I bought was over 10 years ago. I'm not familiar with Yeti and hope that others with much more knowledge than I can offer some feedback or recommendations. Thanks in advance.

Yeti is a very reputable brand of mountain bike frame. I have not ridden one, but I ride with people who can afford better toys than I who have them, race them and love them.

Yeti--One of the classic bikes in UK Mountain biking. A few years ago they tried to make a bike for the masses but they have always made a bike that works. Still one of the best around and will always get praise from those of us lucky -or unlucky- enough to have followed them across the hills. Just a bit out of my price range but a bike that is on any ones list wanting a good bike.
