I have heard that the only way to obtain the rank of master on SSX is to beat the two minute mark on a race in Aloha Ice Jam.
One way to make this easier is to take a short cut. Before going into the tunnel there are red and black striped rails accross a gully.
As soon as you cross the gap go all the way to the left and crash through the glass. You will go down this short cut and come up on some fallen pillars that you have to go around.
Then there are two blocks of ice to go between. Immediately ahead of that there are some more pillars. when you get to this set of pillars push select to reset.
This should give you 10 - 15 second jump in the track. It worked for me so far Ive gotten my time down to 1:50 with Mac. Good Luck.
