You start by sliding down a small hill and stop in a snowy street. Go north and find a small box in a left alcove. Pick up a large medipack from the box. Turn around and enter the east passageway. You enter a small room. Jump up into the upper south-west alcove and use the floor lever. You get a cut scene of a candy cane gate opening. Hop down and go west to the street. Continue north and enter the open gate from the cut scene. Go east to a huge icicle. You can see an opening in the south wall for later. Go east to a tree. Look south and see a closed gate and a receptacle for later. Continue east and go under the archway. At the end of the archway, you get a flyby of the town and a large chateau.
Go east between the buildings. You enter a large open area. To the south-east are three snowmen and the entrance to the chateau. Go north into a dark passageway. Follow it to the end and jump onto a box. Look to the south-west corner and see a jump switch. Grab the roof and shimmy to the right to pull down the jump switch. You get a cut scene of a block dropping in the opening you saw after you entered the gates. Exit this area and go west. Enter the opening that you saw earlier. Go the end of the tunnel. Push a moveable block into a room. Move the block under a high wall switch on the upper north wall. Pull down the wall switch. You get a cut scene of a trap door raising somewhere. Leave the room and go east back under the archway.
This time look south and see a box on trap doors above you. Continue east and go south to the gates of the chateau. Go west and run and jump to grab the raised trap door over the pit. Run and jump south and grab the ledge. Pull up into a room with boxes. You can see a corridor in the west wall for later. Climb onto the highest box and run and jump to pull down a jump switch on the north wall. You get a cut scene of the box that you saw on a trap door. Use the trap door to get over the pit again. Get back to the chateau entrance. Exit and go north and west back to the archway. You should see that the box has dropped onto the ground.
Push the box to the south. Then push the box to the east into another area. Notice a closed block in the west wall. Turn to the north and see a fancy tile in the dark north alcove. Push the block onto that fancy tile and the block drops in the west wall. Do not enter there yet. Go east and pull out a moveable block from the north wall. Push the block into the south-east corner and climb onto the block to reach the roof. Carefully jump onto the blocks to the south and east. Drop onto a ledge above the chateau entrance and pick up torch. Jump the blocks again and return to the open door. Or drop to the ground and run north, west, and then south to get to the open doorway.

Hop into the alcove and pull down the wall switch. Turn around and see that the fence is down. Carefully light the torch on the fire. Exit the room and go north and east to the area where you see three snowman. Save the game now. Throw the lit torch onto the snow in the area where the three snowmen are looking. You should see the snow burn and collapse. If not, reload the game, and try another location. The good place would be about three tiles to the south oposite the door in the north wall. When the snow is gone, step into the depression and pick up the Ruby Cube from the snow. You cannot use it yet, so do not lose it.

Eventually you get to a long jump to the west that you cannot make. Jump to the roof and slide down. Grab the edge and shimmy to the right and onto an invisible crevice. The block is climbable so climb to the top. Most climbable walls in this area have a checkerboard pattern. Stand jump to the higher south block around the corner. The wall to the east is climbable.
