Snow Ride is a 4-Player minigame in Mario Party 7. The minigame's name is a pun on the title of the song "Slow Ride" by Foghat.


The camera quickly shows a small portion of the course before focusing on the players.


The characters ride on snowboards and have to navigate through gates through low walls that alternate from side to side. Although the pattern is easy to anticipate, players are provided less time to move in the later sections of the minigame, due to the placement of the gates being closer together. There are also Warp Pipes that serve as obstacles every now and then. Whoever crosses the finish line first wins. If five minutes pass, the minigame ends in a tie.

This is one of the minigames that can appear in Decathlon Castle. Here, the player's objective is to get to the goal as fast as possible to earn as many points as possible, up to 1,000.

The staff record for Snow Ride is 26"51 in the NTSC version and 31"26 in the PAL version.

The four players appear on a podium, with the winner's place raised above the rest. The winner does their victory animation while the losers do their losing animations. Cheering Koopa Troopas and Goombas can be seen around the players and on the bleachers behind the podium.
