How to model a marble track?

While the subject is rather specific, the question is perhaps a bit more generic. Suppose one wants to model a pipe or a half-pipe (or a winding road for that matter) that starts somewhere up in the air (bear with me on this), and has a downward slope towards the ground (or just a plane), while at the same time taking turns, perhaps crossing under itself on the way down.

While I realize that Onshape (or other MCAD systems) might not be the tool for something like this, I think it should be possible to do it. I have some ideas, and I have done some testing (not yet with a satisfactory result), so I'm asking for ideas on how to best try modelling something like this.
