Closed when covered with snow, late November to early April, weather dependent.
Kush doesn't have the most obvious trailhead. When you exit Kashmir
turn right and start climbing back up the mountain Access Road
for about 50m. Look for the access on the downhill (left) side. The trail starts amongst some tall grass at the side of the ski hill.
The route down is not quite as difficult as Kashmir
, but still similar in character. Thankfully, there are no abrupt ups like the ones found on Kashmir
. This is a naturally technical trail with some steep spots along it and still plenty of places to catch a pedal.
The chute between the two rotten stumps near the end is getting blown out and may need some work this summer. Like Kashmir
, Kush is a hard ride or long push (depending on your lungs/legs) to get to, but may be ridden on its own if you dont have time for a longer ride and dont want to endure the climb up to Kashmir
