    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.

    Rossco7530Weight seemed to be the problem for me. I had advanced armour (Thor's set) and I was sliding very slowly. After several attempts, just like in the video, it just wouldn't unlock.
    I unequipped all my gear and it popped first try.
    Give that a go if you're struggling.

    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!

    RayestusJust used your guide and achievement popped before I even finished sliding. I did a full reset of the game as suggested and everything worked fine. Appreciate the vid!

    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.
