Snowflake Mountain is the second world of Diddy Kong Racing and its Nintendo DS remake Diddy Kong Racing DS. It is a mountainous area covered in snow, as the name would suggest. Snowflake Mountain's courses include frozen ponds, giant snowballs, and a single village in one course. A character can enter the world by flying a Plane over a cliff in the snowy region of Timber's Island. At least two Golden Balloons are required to enter Snowflake Mountain. The world's boss is Bluey.

Snowflake Mountain's lobby consists of the course doors mounted on the mountain cliffs with the Trophy Race located in a cavern next to the igloo, which houses Bluey's Course. The challenge level is located off to the right of the entrance.


For courses where two or all three vehicles can be used, vehicles listed in bold print are the mandated vehicle during Adventure Mode and the Trophy Race, and other vehicles can only be used in a Time Trial or after the course is completed.

Challenge Level:
Icicle Pyramid
N64: Snowball Valley's Wish Key

Car Icicle Pyramid is set in a three-story ice pyramid. It is similar to the Battle Courses of the Mario Kart series. A racer's goal is to simply attack the other racers with from red and green Weapon Balloons placed over the stage. A racer loses if hit by an item four times.

In Diddy Kong Racing DS, Icicle Pyramid was replaced with a Wish Race against T.T. in the Adventure Mode, and was repurposed into a multiplayer-exclusive battle stage like the other Challenge Levels
