Appearances Mario Kart Tour

The Snow Skimmer is a kart in Mario Kart Tour, classified as a High-End kart. It is a red-colored vehicle resembling a small snowmobile with silver exhaust pipes. It is the signature kart of Wario (Hiker) and Builder Mario. The emblem is located on the front and the tailfins. It uses the Standard tires from Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Unlike other karts, all four tires are on the back, similar to a snowmobile's tracks. The Snow Skimmer offers bonus points and longer-lasting speed boosts resulted from performing Jump Boosts.

The kart could be unlocked during the Vancouver Tour, where it was among the second week's spotlights and also part of a Tour Gift for Gold Pass members. It returned in the Mario vs. Luigi Tour as part of the first week's spotlights. A gold variant of this kart known as the Gold Snow Skimmer appears in the game starting with the Rosalina Tour.
