DK Pass is a snowy track owned by Donkey Kong which appears in Mario Kart DS, as the first course in the Star Cup. It reappeared in Mario Kart 7 as the second course in Leaf Cup. It is similar to DK Summit from Mario Kart Wii.
Before the descent down the mountain, there is a wide corner with a snowy mound on its inside. If racers head up this mound, they can collect an Item Box which always has Triple Mushrooms, a Star, a Red Shell, or just a Mushroom, in it. The chances of getting a Mushroom or a Red Shell is pretty slim.
Changes from Mario Kart DS to Mario Kart 7
- Wooden ramps added.
- A boost pad replaced with a gliding pad.
- The Item Box on a snowy hill having a less likely chance of gaining a Star.
- It is snowier.
