The Yeti, or as they have become to be known, the Abominable Snowmen, are a fur-covered humanoid ape-like creature that inhabit the Himalayan region of Nepal, India and Tibet. It is unknown how much the Yeti relate to the Bigfoot or Sasquatch of North America. The name Yeti is commonly used by the people indigenous to the region. The scientific community and the world regarded the Yeti as a legend, but due to interaction with various heroes their identity is publicly known.
Paul Harper, a man who traveled back in time and encountered Neanderthals, also theorized that the Abominable Snowman was a Neanderthal that was preserved in time by an avalanche and thawed out millions of years later. It's possible this could have happened, but they would be lone individuals separate from the other varieties of encountered yeti.
Carl Hanson was obsessed with finding the Abominable Snowman, causing him to make a terrible miscalculation and use a cursed picture of the beast (which he stole) to search for him. The result was that Carl himself slowly became the Abominable Snowman as he searched for the real thing.

As the Silver Surfer traveled the Earth he is attacked by Yetis. The Silver Surfer escaped, not wanting to harm the creatures, for they do what they do only because they distrust man, not understanding them. The Silver Surfer sees that the humans, too, are like the Yeti. They distrust that which they do not understand. And the Surfer, trapped on Earth, has no place to call home for wherever he goes, he is feared.

When Black Panther and Mister Little are travelling over the Himalayas their plane is hit by a beam. They survive and scale the nearby cliffs. A legendary Yeti leaps out from a crag of rocks and attacks them. The two of them race around trying to avoid the monster's blows. The Black Panther erects a rudimentary lever system that launches a heavy rock that smashes the creature in the face, knocking it out.
In the Himalayas; Elaine and Man-Thing are buried in an avalanche. They are rescued by a group of Yeti. They take them to a Norwegian explorer named Hiram Swenson. He told them that he discovered the tribe and decided to make it his mission to protect this tribe's culture from the outside world, and as such insured that it doesn't get discovered. Swenson decided that the Man-Thing and Elaine are a threat to the civilization and so they are taken prisoner. One of the elders of the tribe believes that the Man-Thing is their mammoth god and worshipped it, however this belief does not save them from their intended fate: to be burned at the stake. The Man-Thing manages to get free and at that time Roger arrives with an expedition team and they start shooting at the tribespeople, killing Swenson in the process. 
Searching for his place in the world, Throg was sent by Thor to the Himalayas to search for a Yeti. Throg made contact with the yeti, but the pair were pulled into the Dream Realm shortly after. In the Dream Realm they encounters a monstrous beast threatening the land. Upon meeting the Pet Avengers, Ms. Lion asked what the Yeti's name was. He responded that it was too difficult for him to pronounce, so Ms. Lion decided to call him "Hairball". With help from the other Pet Avengers and the unicorn Damiella, they were able to save the Dream Realm. After the battle, Hairball 2 decide to stay in the Dream Realm with his true love, Damiella.
