Avalanche! is a 4-Player minigame in Mario Party 4.


The characters ski towards the camera, about to be chased by the avalanche. The camera changes its angle, and the minigame begins.


As the name implies, the minigame has characters skiing downhill away from an avalanche. The avalanche constantly rolls behind them, engulfing anyone too slow. Ramps cause characters to jump and speed up, while rocks trip characters and cover them in snow, which they must break out of before the avalanche buries them. The first player to jump off the cliff at the finish line wins. If the avalanche buries everyone, the minigame ends in a draw.


The winning player skis to an area in front of the camera and strikes a pose. The losing players (inside snowballs) fall from the cliff behind the winner. If there is a draw, however, all the players fall from the cliff inside snowballs.
