I also believe that you met the King of the Forest, Mei, and meeting him is a sign of good luck.

I had this one the game shelf when my mother came into town to visit. She looked at the cover art (because she knows this castle as the disney inspiration castle) and pointed out that there should be show around the castle, because it isn't at a lower elevation than the surrounding mountains. If you look there is even some snow in one of the valleys.

Now any time I grab this box it is all I see. Curse you mother!

The snow in the background is several kilometres afar. Every occurence of precipitation has a border somewhere. So maybe the area of the one producing the snow in the background just ended before it reached the castle? whistle

Because the foreground and the background are far apart - maybe several kilometres - you could argue that it's a perspective trick due to camera angle. If you're lowish comparative to the castle, it can look artificially taller than the distant mountains.

Mad King Ludwig cleared all of the snow so he could build his castle, OBVIOUSLY.

That could very well be the picture the artist used.
