Snow Go is a Free-for-All minigame featured in Mario Party 9. The name is a pun on the phrase "no go" which means something failed. The main objective of the minigame is similar to that of Slot Car Derby from Mario Party and Mario Party 2, Water Whirled from Mario Party 3, Later Skater from Mario Party 5, Kart Wheeled from Mario Party 7 and Kartastrophe from Mario Party 8. The concept of avoiding snowballs that Mr. Blizzards throw at players was also used in the Mario Party 4 minigame Mr. Blizzard's Brigade.


The camera zooms in on the players, then zooms out to show the entire course.


Players try to be the first to complete five laps around the track in their snowmobile. Two Mr. Blizzards in the middle of the course throw snowballs about every 4.5 seconds which will freeze any player they hit. About halfway around the track, there is very thick snow which will slow down any player that goes through it. Players can avoid this section by taking the dash ramp.

In Time Attack mode, the player must complete ten laps on the snowmobile. The bonus objective can be accomplished by using the dash ramp on every lap.
