Dream Figure Skating
Dream Figure Skating is a Dream Event that appears in the Wii version of Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games. The objective of the event is to score the most points as a team, with the event taking place in the Dream Figure Centre. To unlock this event, the player must reach day 16 in Individual Festival Mode or day 12 in Team Festival Mode. The starting record for this event is held by Amy with a score of 412.6pt(s).
In this event, the player starts by selecting either the Mario World routine or the Sonic World routine. Each routine features similar elements, but in different sequences. Each player also receives a slightly different set of commands in a different order, determined by the player number. Each element requires a different input, and performing it with better timing will give the player a larger score for the move. Yellow hexagonal element points are steps, and the player must swing the Wii Remote up or down as indicated by the arrow to perform them. Spins are performed on the circular green element points by swinging the Wii Remote in a circular motion. Spirals are performed on the pink lines coming from the square blue element points, and are performed by balancing the character by tilting the Wii Remote. Jumps are performed by swinging the Wii Remote up on red star element points. For red stars with lines leading up to them, the player must move the Wii Remote in the shape shown onscreen to be able to perform an extra jump. Between elements points, the player can also shake the Wii Remote like a conductor's baton in time with the music to score bonus points. At the end of the routine, the player must move the Wii Remote into a certain position to perform a finishing pose at the end of the routine. The team with the overall highest score wins the event.
Depending on the number of players or teams competing in the event, the way that the winner of the event is decided changes. When the event is played in single player mode, the event is always played as a team, however in multiplayer modes additional options to play the event individually, in separate teams or as part of the larger team become available. The party games use a variety of the team set-ups depending on the situation.

The music for the segment is an arrangement of the Ground Theme from Super Mario Bros..

The segment features Fire Bars that the characters jump over and Thwomps which are also jumped over, as well as being dodged.

The first segment of the Sonic World routine takes place with a Green Hill Zone background and an instrumental version of Sonic Heroes as the music. During the segment, the characters collect three Chaos Emeralds, jump using Springs and pass through Rainbow Rings. The characters then follow a Flapper carrying a Chaos Emerald to the next segment, which takes place against a background based on the Death Egg Zone, with Dr. Eggman's theme from Sonic Adventure as the music. During the segment, the characters collect the other four Chaos Emeralds, and it also features Egg Pawns, an additional Flapper and more Springs.
