Snow Whirled is a 4-Player minigame found in Mario Party 6 and Mario Party: The Top 100. 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.


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


The minigame is based on the real-world sport of snowboarding. The object of the game is to get the most points by rotating 360° in midair. Each player starts by going down a slope. They must then perform as many 90° 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° (27 entire revolutions); further spins will not affect the score.

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°.


In Mario Party 6, the players stand on the ground in front of their snowboards. The camera then zooms in on the winner as they perform their victory animation.
