Vector design for the Altimeter and connotations

On the third row down here you can see a little sketch of a mountain. This was the idea I had for the altimeter.

I looked at some pictures of mountains on the internet and decided to use this one for inspiration:

Here I am using the pen tool to try to get the snow in the shape I want it.

Here is the final design.

Connotations

Is your design clear and easy to understand?

I think it is clear to see the mountains in this design. Hopefully when people think of mountains they also think of the word altitude.

How might others view it? How could it be mis-read?

People might think it has something to do with hiking or they may think of the Alps.

Does it look appropriate or does it refer to other meanings?

I think it is appropriate because the design is really easy to understand and is closely related to the word altitude.
