Greater location Winter Island
Inhabitants Toads, Chao, Penguins, Pola

Polastraits is the third place that Mario and Sonic visit in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games for Nintendo DS. Located in a seaside location, it is Pola's home. In this place, Mario can meet the teams Silver the Hedgehog & Blaze the Cat and Wario & Waluigi for the first time, but both duos run away afterwards as a result of their defeat. They are later encountered in Cubyrinth and Icepeak, respectively. Also, Mario and Sonic have to save a Shy Guy and a Chao from falling into the water, as requested by a Penguin. Upon doing so, the Penguin gives them a Blitz Skeleton. There is an unknown area with a large wall of ice that is only accessible when everyone falls down from Cubyrinth after Knuckles pulls a lever. Cuby is held hostage by Eggman Nega here.


Items found[edit]

Minigames found[edit]

  • Break the Ice! - After Knuckles joins the team, they come across a rusty lever in Cubyrinth. Knuckles offers to push it, but upon doing so, the floor beneath them falls and they fall all the way down to Polastraits. Trapped between the ocean and a large wall, Knuckles opts to punch the wall down. After doing so, the team can proceed.
  • Climb to the Top! - After Donkey Kong joins the team, they encounter a tall machine-like pillar in Polastraits. Donkey Kong offers to climb to the top. While doing so, he must avoid bombs and punch out large blocks of ice. After reaching the top, DOnkey Kong punches the machine off and activates the button, which makes a drawbridge extend.
