Merry Mountain is a race course in Mario Kart Tour. It is a course that is based on the North Pole and Santa's workshop, taking place around a small village and a foggy mountain decorated with Christmas presents. Merry Mountain debuted as the featured course in the 2020 Winter Tour. This is the first new course in the game which is not based on a real-life city or a previous course. It is also the first original course that isn't based on a previous course to regularly appear in tours. Several Toads, Yoshis, and Shy Guys act as audience members in the village segment of the course. There are several flying sleighs with audience members in the course, flying around the mountain and riding the course's railroad. Ironically, this is the only course in the game at the time that does not have any festive trees, despite the course's Christmas theme. The course is a favorite of Penguin Luigi, Luigi (Classic), Captain Toad, Peach (Halloween), Cat Peach, and Bowser (Santa). It can also be a favorite of Fire Rosalina when she reaches level 3, and Cat Toad when he reaches level 6.
The race course begins at the snowy village on the mountain's base, with a couple of bends in the road before moving into the rocky cliffside area. There is a split in the road at the cliffside; the lower path features a dirt road with coins, and the upper path features a railroad bridge, which lets the driver boost on a Dash Panel onto another suspended ramp, allowing them to trick a second time. After the split path, there is a wooden bridge which takes the driver further up the mountain, which is decorated with candles, Christmas presents, and candy canes. After several turns in the road, there is a large bump in the road allowing the player to trick. There is a tower of large presents at the top of the mountain, where a gondola lift of presents feeds into. The peak of the mountain features a super half-pipe giving the player a speed boost, at which point the race track goes down the mountain's steep slope. The road to the finish line features a wide Dash Panel beginning the descend down the mountain, with a snowy ramp and two Dash Panels on each side of the road following after. Finally, the track ends with a ramp allowing the player to jump over a bottomless pit beneath the mountain's base, and onto the finish line back at the village.
