You get a cut scene of Winston breaking Christmas tree ornaments. There is a long conversation between Winston and Lara. It ends with Lara getting dressed to go outside into the winter snow.
You start in the bedroom. Go to the north-east and pull down wall switch #1 at the east window. You get a cut scene of a glass cage in the library. Go south-east to exit the bedroom and go left on the balcony. Go west and the first door stays closed. The next door opens for you. Enter the room and pick up the Scroll from the floor. It states that you need four Christmas balls. Remember this room with the double beds. You will return here later. Exit the room and go down the stairs. Winston is sweeping up the broken glass. Go to the south-east window and pull down wall switch #2. You get the same cut scene.

Go south to exit the room and turn east into the small room. Go east into the modified kitchen. Turn around and pull down jump switch #4 above the entrance door. You get the same cut scene. Exit the room and go south and go towards Winston. Go south into the library. The glass cage is on the west wall. Go to the gaps between the bookcases and pull back the south bookcase. Push the bookcase onto the fancy tile to the north. The west wall drops and you enter a music room.
Go to the south-west window and pull down wall switch #5 on the east wall. You get the same cut scene but the glass cage is dropping. Exit the music room and jump to the opening to pick up a Book. Return upstairs to the room with the double beds. Enter the room and go to your left. Pull back the furniture with the lamp and move it aside. Go behind it and follow the corridor to a room with three similar reading tables. Place the book in the middle reading table. A wall drops in the south-east corner of the room. Go there and pull down a wall switch. You get a cut scene of the front door finally opening.
Go downstairs and exit the house and into the winter snow. Go to the west and enter the archway. Follow the pathway along the side of the house to enter the obstacle course. You get a cut scene showing the obstacle course and a key in a glass cage. Get onto the first short block. Run and jump to grab the south wall. Pull up onto the roof. Run south and jump over the pathway and onto another roof and see a tree. Shoot the box by the tree. You get secret #1 and a Golden Rose. Return over the roofs and back onto the first block of the obstacle course.
Jump to the second higher block and get a cut scene of the timed glass cage dropping at the key. Jump off the block to the left side. Run east and ignore the next few obstacles. Then jump onto a block structure and climb the higher block to the east. Run and jump to the east to grab a climbable wall. Climb to the top and run and jump east onto a bridge. Go east and pull up to the left onto the block with the slide wire. Slide down the wire and into the opening. Pick up the Silver Key off the floor.
Safety drop to the ground and go back and climb the block and wall again. Go to the bridge and climb up onto the slide wire block. This time climb the higher block to the west. Run and jump to the south-west to land on the roof over the patio. Slide down and grab the edge. Shimmy to the left and pull up into an opening. Shoot the box for secret #2 and a Golden Rose. Drop onto the patio and pick up flares. Safety drop to the ground.
Go to the structure were the key was located. Go to the east wall and turn around to face the icy structure. Pull down a jump switch and the door opens in the east wall of the house. Enter the room and shoot the box. You get secret #3 and a Golden Rose. Exit and jump into the water pool under the slide wire start structure. Swim into the north-east corner for flares.
Go south and follow the remaining obstacle source to a doorway in the south wall. Turn to the left and see a closed gate. Use the silver key to open the gate. Enter the room and get onto the snowmobile. Drive out and then drive into the south doorway. Drive through a tunnel and then a small valley. Turn to right and drive up a small hill and get off the snowmobile. Run to the dead-end to the east. Jump the snow bank and land on a Merry Christmas sign. You get secret #4 and a Golden Rose.
Get on the snowmobile and drive south. You will see some buildings to your left on the other side of a tunnel. However, drive east and up the snow hill where you see tracks in the snow. Go over the top of the hill slowly and when you are over the crest of the hill, turn to the left and go south. Follow the upper ledges and do not go down into the valley. Continue south and go up a hill and down into the next valley. Turn to the right and drive east towards a tree. Get off the snowmobile and shoot the box beside the tree. You get secret #5 and a Golden Rose.
Drive up the hill to the north-east. Stop at the top and you can see a building in the distance. That is your destination so drive there. You cannot get to the building with the snowmobile but stop by the short snow wall. Notice a high jump switch on the column. Now drive south beside the wall and over the hill into the next valley. If you see a white flash and the camera angle changes, you are in the right place. Turn around and come back to drive onto the top of the short snow wall. Carefully follow the top of the snow wall. You will drive into another valley with a building. If you climb the west wall, you will find the place where you got a secret. Do not go there yet, but go east and climb the blocks beside a column. Grab the bridge above you and monkey swing to the south. Go to the other column and pull down the jump switch. You get a long flyby of a tunnel and a door opening in the building.
Go north behind the small building and climb onto a block. Black flip to the roof and jump forward to grab the monkey swing again. Go north and drop into the other valley to claim back the snowmobile. Although, you can walk back to the tunnel and just leave the snowmobile. Now drive west over the hill to return to the area with the secret. Go south to find the tunnel again. Go west and see a south side branch tunnel in the snow before the actual tunnel to the west. This branch tunnel was the tunnel from the flyby. Follow the tunnel to the buildings and enter the open door to your left. Go up the stairs and jump onto a platform and pick up a Pink Key. Exit the building and return back through the tunnel. Now go west and drive through the tunnel to the buildings.
On the other side of the tunnel, get off the snowmobile and walk. There is a closed door and a key lock to the north. It needs a different key. Go south between the two buildings. Look east to see another key lock. Go west to the end and pull down a wall switch on the woodpile in the corner. Return to the east and enter the open door. Pull down the jump switch over the entrance door. You get a cut scene of a door opening. Exit the door and loop around to the left. You should see the open door to the far north.
Go to the open door and follow a corridor to a kitchen. Turn to the right and go to a bed at the end of the hallway. Turn to the right and go up some stairs to pick up a White Key off the floor near the windows. If you follow the branch corridor to the west, you can see a present behind a window. Exit this building and return to the tunnel entrance where you should have left the snowmobile. Go north and use the white key to open the door. Enter the door and go north to see bookshelves. Loop around to the left and pick up a Yellow Key on the floor near a bed.
Exit the room and go south to the other key lock that you saw. Use the yellow key to open the door. Enter the building and see a key lock behind a glass cage. Use the pink key in the key lock in the north wall. The glass cage drops and a door opens behind you in the south wall. Enter the room and go west between the two beds. Crouch down to pick up a Pink Key from the floor. Return to the other key lock and use the pink key. The door opens in the north wall. Enter the door and go east into a kitchen. Shoot the box and pick up a Green Ball.
Exit the room and return to the snowmobile. Depending where you left the snowmobile, look west and see a brown block with a blue plant on it. Hop onto that block and pull up to the ledge to the east. Go north a little and drop into the open trap door. Shoot a box and pick up a Blue Ball. Climb the wall above the door to back flip onto the roof.
Get down and go west and north to the door in the north-west corner again. Go through the kitchen and the west through the hallway. Near the bed is a lighter colored floor tile that is a trap door. Pull up the trap door and drop into the tunnel. Follow the tunnel to the end. Pull down a trap door on the west side. Pull up into the room on the west side. Shoot the box and pick up the White Ball. You hear a door open. Go east and jump over the sleds to the open door and exit back into the snow.
Go north again but do not enter that door again. Turn around and see a high jump switch on the south wall. Hop on the woodpile. Grab the roof edge and shimmy to the right to pull down the jump switch. You get a flyby ending with an open door. Go east and turn left between the buildings to find the door. Enter the door and drop into a hole. Notice a glass cage below you. Pull down a wall switch and get a cut scene of glass cages dropping. Get out of the hole and go south to see the opening in the south wall where the glass cages were located. Enter the room and shoot three empty trashcans. Go to the south-west and enter an alcove to shoot a trashcan to reveal a switch. Pull down the wall switch and get a cut scene of the earlier door with the glass cage gone. Exit and go north to return there. Climb down a ladder into the hole. Move the three cubes on pedestals onto the tiles with the appropriate colors. The glass cage in the west wall drops. Enter and pull down the wall switch. You get a cut scene of a door opening. Climb the ladder to exit the room. Go left and then west to find the open door in the west wall. Go down a ramp into a room. Pick the Red Ball off the tree in the room.
Exit this room and return to the snowmobile. Drive through the tunnel and back to the obstacle course. Get off the snowmobile and go trough the doorway in the west wall. The doorway is partially hidden by trees. Return to the house and enter the front door. You get a cut scene of Winston and Lara again. Lara hangs a Christmas ball on the tree and drops and breaks the ball as the level ends.
