Snow Whirled is a 4-Player minigame found in Mario Party 6, Mario Party: The Top 100, and Mario Party Superstars. The title is a pun on "snow world" and "whirled."

In Mario Party 6, the only changes between day and night are aesthetic. The lights on the ramp and ski lift are activated at night, and an aurora appears in the sky at night, while clouds appear during the day. Only the daytime version appears in Mario Party: The Top 100 and Mario Party Superstars.


The camera flies from the bottom of the slope to the top of the ramp, where the players are standing on snowboards.

The minigame is based on the real-world sport of snowboarding and takes place in a snowy forest with a ski lift. The object of the minigame is to get the most points by rotating 360 degrees in midair. Each player starts by going down a slope. They must then perform as many 90-degree spins as possible while in midair by pressing A Button, B Button, Y Button, and X Button in that order. The score is capped at 9,720 degrees (27 entire revolutions) in Mario Party 6 and 9,990 degrees in Mario Party Superstars; further spins do not affect the score. If all players have the same score, the minigame ends in a tie.

In Mario Party 6, this minigame appears as the fourth minigame in Decathlon Park. Here, the player's objective is to do as many spins as possible to earn as many points as possible, up to 1,000. The default record for this minigame in Decathlon Park is 1,080 degrees. It also appears in The Top 100's Decathlon as the eighth minigame.

In The Top 100 and Superstars, computer players' turns can be skipped with X Button and R Button, respectively.


In Mario Party 6 and Mario Party Superstars, the players stand on the ground in front of their snowboards. The camera then zooms in on the winner(s) as they perform their victory animation(s) while the losers perform their losing animations. In the case of a tie, all players do their losing poses.
