How is " in the mountains" different from " on the mountains"? One house can also be 'on a mountain' but not 'on the mountains' unless it's a really big house! Here, the home is somewhere in the middle of mountains.
Goats and trees and snow can also be 'in the mountains'. A bear lives in the mountains. Sometimes it is on a mountain, and at other times it is in a valley among mountains. It is never inside a mountain unless it sleeps in a cave, but it is always in the mountains. I think it's a question of plurality. If I were talking about a single mountain, I'd definitely go with " on the mountain " instead of " in the mountain ", but in case of plural, i'd rather use " in the mountains ".
