“An amazing ride utilizing Whistler's full prominence to ride some great singletrack.”— Andrew BikeGuide
As Top of the World leaves Highway 86 (ski run/fireroad) look left after the rooty right hand descent and you'll see the newer entrance to Khyber Pass. Follow the trail, there are no side trails, to the fire service road.
Turn right and carefully descend the FSR due to huge rocks and water drainage ditches. It is easy to hit 60 kmph speeds along here and just as easy to be off the bike in a blink. At the first three way track junction, turn right and then immediately right up the hill, staying on this new FSR.
Climb like a champion for a long time.
The entrance to Kashmir is on the right. This is one of the better trails in Whistler but people tend to be put off by the climb. It is a steeper, more technical version of Khyber Pass. Exit Kashmir on FSR, cross FSR and find entrance to Kush.
Exit Kush and turn right, roll down the access road to Kadenwood Dr. (smart sub division), ride to end of cul-de-sac and take wooden stairs up the rock face to the trail.
You are now on Big Timber which is mainly downhill with some quite tech sections, especially given the high speeds and cumulative fatigue. Watch out for bears and locals walking their dogs.
Exit woods, cross ski run, turn left on the gravel path, stop, get someone to watch the bikes, buy beers, fries and wings to re-fuel. Well done, you have completed a Whistler epic!
