The player drives the Snow Trekker around to try to reach a target, while collecting coins. The Snow Trekker can go into boat mode to move on water, requiring the player to blow into the microphones on the DS for it to move while on water. In another mode, the Snow Trekker grows a plow which helps it destroy obstacles. You can also use just normal mode too. To change modes just tap on the Snow Trekker with the DS Stylus Pen. Crashing into objects will damage the Trekker. Logs and Snow Drifts are the only two obstacles that can be removed with shovel-mode and not take damage. The maximum amount of coins that can be gathered is 260.
The penguin driving the Trekker is always Red, regardless of the player's color.
