    Hi All

    Achievement currently seems to be unlocking intermittently. It was a delayed unlock on my end. I did this near the Fannaraki Summit viewpoint in Norway. Just to the right there is a steep cliff you can slide down, run forward press B to slide and steer past rocks etc with your left stick. Quick video for your reference.

    lordprofessorI was having issues with this not popping. I was also initiating the slide. When I came back after an hour of being frustrated, I just ran and it slid on its own and it popped right away.

    D4RKPH4N70MWhen in jotunheim, there is a cutscene where you are hanging from a tree it drops you into a slide. I already earned the achievement before this happened. Can anyone confirm that you can get it that way? It should be longer than 150m by a fair bit and you dont have to trigger the slide yourself so it should be much easier than the above mentioned ways. Less buggy hopefully.

    Thought I'd give this a go as I hadn't done the Asgard/Jotunheim storyline yet, but sadly doesn't seem to work. Shame tho was hoping i wouldnt have to go climbing in Norway to get it ! lol

    This can be done quite close to the start of the game.
    Head up to a mountain viewpoint called "Fannaraki Mountain"
    Its a top this big, beautiful, snowy mountain top and can take a while to get there.

    Once here, on the video you will see the location on the map, its slightly south east of the viewpoint.
    This is the ONLY place in the game where there is enough snow to slide down for over 150M.
    If you actually place a cursor at the bottom, you can see how long you have actually got.. Usually around 175-180M.

    Be aware, this CAN be glitchy and buggy.
    If it does, try to hard reset or cold rest the console.
    Quit out of the game and attempt to get back into it.
    Try holding B and controlling Eivor.
    Try hitting B once to slide, then letting go.
    Trying all different things could be key to unlocking it.

    Hope it works for you!

    DirtySanjeevThanks for the guide. I was able to get the achievement but one note is that I had to restart the game. I tried first after a resume and it didnt work, I then restarted the game and did the exact slide here again and it worked.

    The Nerds ClubDownvoted for acting like this is the only place in the Game with 150m of Snow to Slide Down which it's not, UntilTammaroYTs Guide Proves you wrong.

    HOW TO GET AROUND THE BUGGY ACHIEVEMENT.

    First of all I just want to say that I've attempted to get this achievement by following other user guides, however this never ever unlocked.
    I attempted the following:
    - Normal slide down the hill.
    - Slide down the hill whilst holding B
    - Slide down the hill whilst only using thumbstick for directions
    - Slide down the hill without slowing down
    None of the above worked. (please note i attempted all the above on a 95 hour male eivor character)

    I then attempted to restart the game, completed the prologue and docked in Norway, the first thing I did was head to the slide spot on top of the mountain and I got this within my first attempt. I actually got it before I even hit the bottom. Please note I started this new game as the female Eivor (not sure if this will make a difference, but this is how i achieved it).

    Think its also worth noting that the launch day patch was very buggy and that was when i started the game, starting a new game with the latest patch and with female eivor did the trick for me.

    Hope this helps.

    If you fast-travel to Fannaraki Summit in Norway and then zoom in the map all the way, there'll be a path of snow slightly curving down the mountain like a snake towards the south-southeast side about halfway down the mountain.

    It's worth trying the slide with all armor/equipment off. Tried multiple times before going bare-assed, and then it popped immediately.
