    There are 24 courses in total that you are required to complete. Basically you need to beat the first 8 levels in each of the 3 areas. Courses 9 and onwards in each world are harder versions of other previous levels so you don't need to worry about those.


    - Usually if you fail a level, you have to restart from level 1 but I recommend you save after completing a level or at the beginning of a new one. This just gives you the opportunity to retry/practice a level if you fail. To save/load the game, pause the game, then hold down cn_start to bring up the menu and you can save/load there.

    - Use cn_LT to rewind if you crash.

    - This may not help but I found it really weird using the left thumbstick to turn. The key thing is speed so I ended up using my left thumb to push the left thumbstick forwards to keep my speed up and then I used my right thumb on the D-Pad to turn. It made it much easier to fine tune the turning by just tapping left/right on the D-Pad.

    - There isn't much else to it really other than practice.

    - Once you have done the first 8 levels of a mountain, intentionally fail so that you quit out. Then just move on to the next mountain. After the first 8 levels of any mountain, it will loop through and give you levels you have likely completed already. (Thanks to ChArG1nMaLAZ0R & HawkeyeBarry20 for suggesting this clarification).

    AhayzoThanks a lot for the tip on using two thumbs, made a huge difference. Well, that and the fact I somehow forgot about the rewind feature (which I abuse regularly) the second I started on this achievement laugh

    ChArG1nMaLAZ0RIt would have helped if you made it clear to intentially get a game over after getting past level 8 and that at the menu you can choose a course. Its very vague that you can actually change the course and you gave no clue on how to skip the loop of levels

    steven2furiousHeres some tips if anyones struggling with this i just got this yesterday with ease i used sniffles trick but changed them around

    I used my left thumb on the stick to steer and my right thumb on the up on the d-pad for speed worked a treat i finshed most courses with 5-10 seconds to spare even the hard ones

    Small movements on the stick for turns avoid everything if you hit anything rewind and dodge and keep away from the side try to get between the flags as much as you can by reminding and dodging look ahead of your guy dont look at him and line up your next movement

    Once your done the eighth course it will start going Backwards counting down becoming harder pause quit game / start new game pick a different mountain

    Just to note your right thumb will probably end up with cramp hope this helps someones as this was driving me mad cheers.

    OverIoadGreat guide, glided into the finish with the clock at 0:00:00 on the last level on 2nd attempt.

    Good tip using two thumbs to steer using the d-pad. What i also did was use the Xbox Accessoires app to remap the d-pad up button to the RB button. That way i could keep my hands on the controller normal while keeping the speed up button pressed pretty much all the time. You don't need an elite controller for that.

    HawkeyeBarry20I thought you picked one course and eventually the game would take you everywhere. I got to a point I was hitting every gate, not hitting any jumps which lowers speed and not wrecking once and could not beat a course. Then I read here someone didn't know not hitting the gates lowers your speed and I knew I was doing something wrong. @ChArG is right, it should be put in the description to do the 8 courses go back to the main menu and do 8 courses of one of the other starting options and then do the last one. Would of saved me so much time and frustration.

    EmpHelmFantastic guide. Great job.

    KillipoI was stuck on level 5 until I did the two-thumb method and realized I needed to hit all the gates for speed (the snapshots tipped me off on this). Two thumbs up for this solution
