Montana Treasures // Helena with Lanie White
Diving headfirst into an entirely new sport—especially one like mountain biking—is intimidating. But, it can also be incredibly rewarding. Helena, MT local Lanie White finds both freedom and empowerment in mountain biking, and through her job at Prickly Pear Land Trust, she works to ensure the opportunity and experience is available for everyone.
Every mountain bike community has its individuals who are constantly striving to progress the sport. Be it trail building, advocacy, land management or retail, every avenue is an equally important part of creating a thriving movement.
Montana Treasures is a series about a few of the many people who embody the state’s greater mountain bike scene through their actions and endeavors.

Issue 8.3, the Montana Photo Book, is a visual guide to the trails of the Treasure State. We selected four local photographers, Reid Morth, Jason O'Neil, Tom Robertson and Nick VanHorn, to document their respective hometowns of Big Sky, Helena, Missoula and Whitefish and capture the experience and vibe that fill the mountains of the Montana high country.
