Besides hosting the ShredX at the historic Roman Theater through the local grant program, running the contest at the Beartooth Basin Ski Area, and socializing with evening mixers at the Kevin Kinzley Gallery, Shredfest featured a “Made MT” event to highlight outdoor businesses (Jelt, Willie Gear, Outa Wear, Alta Physical Fitness) and Outlaw Brewing from Montana. Most notably, Jelt offers recycled plastic belts made by women at a Billings prison (1% for the planet member). Management worked with Full Circle Biofuels and Beartooth Basin to overcome hurdles to start using biodiesel in their generator to power the ski area’s lifts—an industry first.
