Snowball Summit is a mini-game that appears in Mario Party 3.


The characters are situated on a tall snowy summit where snow is constantly falling. The objective of the mini-game is for the player to create a snowball that contains enough force to knock a character off the summit. They must form a snowball in the snow by pressing the B button repeatedly. Once they form a snowball, they can make it larger by rolling it around in the snow. To release the snowball, the player must press the A button. The smaller the snowball is, the faster it will travel. However, the opponent receives a low knock-back from the small snowball. The larger snowballs move slower when they are released, however the knock-back that is received from a larger one contains more force. If two characters roll a snowball at each other at the same time, then their snowballs will be destroyed. The last character that is remaining on the summit will win the mini-game.
