Dream Ski Cross (Individual)
Dream Ski Cross is a Dream Ski Cross Dream Event that appears in the Wii version of Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games. The objective of the event is to complete two laps of the course in the fastest time, with the event taking place on Mario Circuit.

Tricks can also be performed while airborne from boosted ramps and the Cannon, and the more tricks a player performs while in the air, the greater the speed boost that they will receive when they land. The more complicated tricks will also boost the player's landing speed further. The player can also use their special action, which grants them a short speed boost, by pressing . The player is given one special action at the start of the event, and the special action can be replenished by collecting 5 Coins once it has been used.
