A snow spirit called Frosty asked the heroes to hinder the snow from melting and recover Vancover 2010 Winter Olympic competition.

Trivia

  • Most of the DS profile artwork is borrowed from earlier games like Super Mario Galaxy, Super Mario 64 DS, Mario Party 7, Mario Party DS, Dance Dance Revolution: Mario Mix, Mario Party 8, Sonic the Hedgehog (2006), Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games, and Sonic Unleashed. Other art is either new or borrowed from the Sonic Channel. For the female participants in this game, the difference in their profile arts is that they are wearing their respective winter outfits.
    • Bowser's profile artwork is the same as his artwork for New Super Mario Bros. Wii, which came almost a month after this game.
  • An app based on this game was released for Apple's iPhone and iPod Touch, but only features Sonic characters and thus is named simply Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games. This game has since been removed from the AppStore.
  • This is currently only game in the series to be released on both consoles on the same day (except Japan and South Korea).
  • Dry Bowser is not present in the photo that shows the bosses at the end of Adventure mode.
  • The sounds used for the Super Mushroom and the Mini Mushroom are the ones used in New Super Mario Bros. for the same items.
  • This is also the second and final game in the series to feature Scott Burns as Bowser, even though he wasn't credited in the game's credits.
