Whiteout Valley (known as White-Out Valley in the British English version), formerly known as White Valley, is the fifth level of World 4 in Paper Mario: Sticker Star. The level features a ski lift, which Mario rides while avoiding enemies.


Mario starts in a small snowy area that leads into an icy cave. An Ice Bro and a Shiny Goomba wander around this cave. At the right end of the cave, there is a Heart Block and an Save Block The exit of the cave is blocked off by a void, which is shaped to match the Forebear's Portrait scrap obtained in the prior level, The Enigmansion. There is a ski lift beyond the exit, but it is non-functional.

Using Paperize to fill the void with the Forebear's Portrait causes the sepia coloring of the scrap, excluding the forebear, to fade into normal colors. The forebear performs a safety check and activates the ski lift, allowing Mario to take the lift upward.

While on the chairlift, enemies attempt to attack Mario. If Mario comes in contact with an enemy or an attack, he must fight the enemy before continuing. These battles occur on top of the rope holding up the lift. Outside of battle, there are some hearts and coins on said rope that Mario can collect.

The first area on the lift takes Mario up a snowy mountainside. It contains coins, Ice Bros., and Fuzzies. The second area goes through a cave with larger groups of Fuzzies. The third area is similar to the first, but Shiny Paragoombas replace the Fuzzies. At the end of the last area, Luigi is taking the lift down the mountain. As usual, he can be pulled off via Paperization.

The ski lift ends on a spire with small spiral blue staircase. The stairs lead up to a raised platform with the Comet Piece. Once Mario reaches the this area and hops off the lift, the ski lift ceases functioning.

If the player returns to this level after completing it, the forebear is no longer present, but the lift is still active.

Secret Door[edit]

The Secret Door outline is located on the back wall of the first cave area. The Flashlight is hidden inside the room.
