While we’ve seen Mario don Santa’s trademark coat and hat, this year it looks like his arch enemy is trying to steal some of his milk and cookies. Mario Kart Tour has announced this year’s Winter Tour, and while familiar festive drivers Santa Mario and Reindeer Yoshi are ready to roll again, newcomer Santa Bowser is also hoisting up his sack of gifts.

Another interesting addition this time is the headlining track. Merry Mountain is a brand new course, never featured in a previous Mario Kart title! This isn’t the first time Mario Kart Tour has brought on a new raceway, though most of them have been inspired by famous cities rather than these North Pole festivities. You can have a view of it (and some new duds for Lakitu) in the below Tweet:

As mentioned, players can take snapshots and post them with #MerryMountain to earn up to 5,000 coins for all players. Whether you want to earn the gift giving Koopa King or see what Merry Mountain has to offer, you can only do it by taking part in the Mario Kart Tour Winter Tour – available now.
