    Slippery Slalom = 01:12:99

    Avalanche Ambush = 01:29:99

    Snowglide Run = 01:16:99

    You should be aiming to collect as many as the crystals as possible as these give you short speed boosts, following their line generally shows you a good path to take around rocks and jumps too.

    Due to the very inconsistant snowbike it is advised that you avoid as many jumps as possible and try to not hit any rocks or make any sudden harsh turns.

    I also found that pressing B (to jump) when going off a ramp only increases your chances of being wiped out upon landing.

    I am currently unsure if bike enhancements from the main story carries over to the time trials, but I got the achievement without any upgrades so they aren't necessary.

    EDIT: A lot of people are finding it easier to control the snowmobile when in first person view, Personally I preferred the widier vision but if you're struggling then this could be something to look into.

    Cro11 First person made this much easier. Also one tip I'm not sure I saw is never ever touch the camera(rs). It messes up your aim and makes it hard to drive straight

    l BlackBrian7 l I failed the first track 3 times by a few seconds using 3rd person view. Switched to 1st person and beat each track with around 3 seconds to spare on each. Absolutely try 1st person view (LB) if you are struggling!!

    SequentialSword I was dreading this achievement but I managed to unlock it relatively quickly, first person view is a must, I have no idea why it makes such a big difference but it does! I tried in third person and the machine just didn't seem to control anywhere as smoothly as first person. The first course is the hardest in my opinion, courses 2 and 3 seem a tad more forgiving.
