Snowy highlands can be a welcome destination for those who have been working hard. The Mortmain Mountains, where youngsters can enjoy skiing, snowshoeing, and celebrating an early spring, seems to be a perfect place for the weary Baudelaire orphans to spend some time after their difficult journey. For Violet, who likes to invent things, the mountains may offer a chance to apply her mechanical skills to an icy test. And for Klaus, who enjoys reading, there may be an opportunity to apply his skill with words to deciphering a well-hidden code. And for Sunny, who has four sharp teeth and enjoys biting things, a mountain hideaway in the company of hungry villains may allow her to apply her toothy skill to provide the villains with food. The fresh air of this wintry wonderland seems a perfect haven for three highly skilled orphans, who will be well-prepared if their stay in Mortmain Mountains turns out to be the most chilling yet in a series of unfortunate events.
