A short trail to add on after riding Kashmir. Comparable in difficulty and trail style to both Kashmir & Ride Don't Slide.

Access Info

After exiting Kashmir, ride up the road until the ski run. Kashmir starts on the rider's left side of the ski run when looking downside. Can be moderately difficult to see the trail depending on how high the grass has grown.

       A warning for visitors and first timers on this trail. Do not be fooled by the single diamond rating on this trail which was likely assigned back when it was a smooth loam trail. When blown out (or wet) this trail will likely spank most first timers other than expert level riders and local tech gnar masters. You have been warned! Be prepared to do some walking the fist time otherwise.

       This is definitely as hard as Ride Don’t Slideand should be labeled double black. Basically a fall line skid mark

       My partner and I road this trail today. Other comments on here are bang on. It road like a double black, even for Whistler trails. Fall line straight shot over nar. Be prepared to have wheels lock up as slide downhill in an uncontrolled skid. Not for the faint of heart.
