Snow blocks are obstacles found in the Vanilla Lake courses in Super Mario Kart, Mario Kart: Super Circuit, and Mario Kart Tour. If a racer drives into a snow block, it knocks them back and disappears, slowing them down. Snow blocks can also be broken with projectile items. In Mario Kart Tour, bonus points are granted for breaking a snow block.

In Vanilla Lake 1, three groups of snow blocks can be found: two rows with each block spaced apart found approximately halfway through the course, and one scattered group found after the small ice crack. In Vanilla Lake 2, clusters of snow blocks appear near the halfway point, while a scattered group appears before the finish line.
