To some extent, yes. The higher you get, the harder it is to live. The Solarians say that it is because you are impure. Ther's a rather charming fable about that in Anaxial's Record talking about Vrimak and Avarina (SP!)

Snow? The mountains go to the middle air and are chillled by Oranth's Breath! Valind and his children still are there. Plenty of reasons. Just look to any medieval text looking for reasons for snow on mountains if you want a Western view.

Hope this helps,
