    The following are the requirements for Gold Explore Badge (all must be collected for the achievement:

    I'm Done - Earn a Gold medal for every drop in one range.

    I would advise Alaska to be the place to do it - Gold can be achieved on most drops pretty easily. It is advised you wait and do this badge when you have a higher level player so you can use better mods such as speed boost for race events and trick multiplier for trick events.

    For the trick events where you have the avalanche view, try to keep the combo going (by manualing with b or x on flat) + (varying the tricks in the air) the whole way down the mountain and you will eventually get the required amount *there are two* - this is frustrating so keep at it!


    Inheritance - Earn a total of 150,000 SSX credits from ghost wins.

    Everytime someone loses to your record on a range, you will win an amount of credits - just make sure you have a good range of friends who have the game and set as many records as possible to increase the likliness of getting it quickly.


    Supernatural Snowboarder - Your records have withstood 50 challenges from Friends.

    This is similar to the last badge but is the number of times you must withstand them beating you rather than credits earned.


    Lonely at the Top - Beat 50 friends records.

    Again, make sure you have plenty of friends on your list and this will eventually come - this can be easily boosted by getting someone to set a poor record and then you beating it.


    Hoarder - Place 15 Geotags that never get collected.

    If you place a geotag in a hard to reach place and no one finds it for 24 +hours, this counts as 1. Try hiding them in cliff drops where someone is unlikely to stumble across unless by accident. As soon as you hit level 7 with a character, you can hold 2 geotags per run, speeding up the process.

    A Dreadful Shot Alaska was definitely the way to go. None of them were too overly difficult like some of the other mountains, even with the flipped camera angle (which I absolutely hate; what an awful game design).

    Trombonafide Ok, Tranierx is 100% right. Use flips only.

    After trying this method, I more than doubled the required Gold scores on the last two Alaska maps I needed, one of which was the Deadly Descent trick. Chain with ground tricks (nose press/tail press) and vary your tricks with flips. One try 17,000,000 on Pan and 9,000,000 on the Deadly Descent.

    Dr Marty Disclaimer: I am REALLY bad at this game!!! Also, I've not taken the time to really learn the controls.
    So, in order to help myself out a bit, I have boosted tons of credits with a dummy account (*see below for how*), which I then used to buy tons of geotags, which in turn boosted me to level 15! (I boosted Alex [for race events], Psymon and Mac [for trick events]). I bought the absolute best gear and have tons of money for as many boost items as I wish. This makes everything so much easier, just short of fool-proof.
    In total I must have spent 200 million credits on the gear, the ranking-up charges (past level 10) and the boost items.

    *The way you can get unlimited credits is as follows:
    - You need 2 accounts! (easy if you're playing on Xbox One, because of gold sharing)
    - Use either one of your accounts (primary or dummy) and go to global.
    - Create an online event (not the 1-2-3 events though!).
    - Set it up as survival, 10min, select highest entrance fee that both your accounts can afford, and leave the prize money distribution at its default. (this way one of your accounts will get his entrance fee back in full and the winning account gets around 160% of his entrance fee as a prize.)
    - use one of the accounts and jump off the first cliff you can find. Use the other account and barely beat that distance, then also jump off a cliff.
    - Wait until the event is over in 10min and collect your prize money.
    - Now you always need to switch the account that will win. Otherwise, one of the accounts will not gain any money (but not lose any either), which will limit how much you can set the prize money to be in future events. Therefore, make sure you alternate the winning accounts.
    - The rate at which your bank account grows, will accelerate exponentially, since you'll be able to afford greater entrance fees, which in turn increases the prize money.

    Hope this helps and anyone is still in need of a solution for this ancient game.
