Northern Heights is a custom track created by Lovelifeandtpose024. It takes place far in the mountains during winter. Racers drive not only through valleys and crags, but also through ancient and mysterious ruins. It is heavily inspired by The Storm Peaks from the game World of Warcraft. There is also an Easter egg.
