The only feature of the later YZ/WR's that is notably better is the forks, they lack the spike of the 98-00 models and are more progressive in the action.

My '01 WR426 absolutley loves every aspect of Colorado that I throw at it. Berthoud tracks, Rockies rocky trails, the woodiest of tight woods single track, IT LOVES IT. Going from 6,000 to 14,000 feet, no problem.
As far as a decision between 250, 400, or 426....... doesn't seem like you can go wrong with any of them. Keep in mind, that for us at elevation, we automatically are handycaped do to the thinner air. I can say that the additional CC's up in altitude help to off set this minor problem. If you think that your going to require seemingly unlimited power, even if you need to grow into it, go with the bigger bike for sure. But hey, the 250F is no slouch either, just be honest with yourself on how demanding your going to be with your bike....... don't suppose any of this helps, sorry.
