Evaluating Literature—setting

Mount Baker provides a perfect setting for the story: it enables the father to expose his son to risk and uncertainty, teaching him valuable life lessons. The setting supports the story's central ideas.

Weather—"bitter blinding snow" in the beginning; "fresh powder" at the end.
Location—mountains, fast ski runs, and steep roads with hairpin turns.
Season—Christmas: hope for a new beginning.
