Snow Way Out is a 1-vs.-3 minigame in Mario Party 8. Its name is a pun on "no way out."


The team players jump out of the chimney of a cottage (similar to the one seen at the end of the Mario Party 5 minigame Tube It or Lose It) and land on the roof. The camera then zooms out to show a background of snow with snow-covered trees while the solo player drives in on a snow vehicle.


The solo player shoots snowballs from the vehicle to make the rivals fall off. The solo player either can hit the three directly to encase them in ice or can hit the roof, making it slippery, thus making it easier for them to fall off. The trio's goal is to avoid the snowballs and avoid falling off the roof. If the team players jump on each other, they will be stunned temporarily. The solo player wins if they make all the rivals fall off. The team players win if at least one of them survives until time runs out.


The ending to Snow Way Out if the solo player wins

If the solo player wins, they perform their victory dance while the other three sit in the snow, dizzy after being frozen. If the team players win, the solo player is forced to retreat with a sad face as they do victory poses.
