    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.

    EDIT: These videos (not mine) can be used as a guide for a path to take.

    SequentialSwordI 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.

    Fooga^ Those videos were really spot on. I didn't watch the third video since it's the first track just darker with less crystals, but the same route applies. For anyone trying for this, I also recommend doing track 1 and 3 back to back. To add, if you mess up that large jump in the middle of the course, just reset. The times are too tight for you to spin out.

    The second course is really easy I almost didn't need the video and got a better time by 4 seconds. Just stay on smooth snow and get as many crystals as possible and it's easy.

    ccliffy90Couldn't get anywhere near the time on the first map following this route finally got it, found it easier in first person aswell may be just me but the snowmobile actually seems to steer better in first person
