I'm guessing that coastal moderation of temperatures kept Lithuania warm enough to miss the list.

Well, not really. Liechtenstein is a very small country and entirely in the Alps (i.e. where it's cold most of the time). Austria has some plains areas where the mean temperature is higher. Check out this map to see what I mean: http://www.atozmapsdata.com/zoomify.asp?name=Country/Modern/Z_Austri_Temp

Parts of Austria get hot in the summer months - visited there with my parents many years ago in May and it was about 35°C for several of the days we were there. I imagine being landlocked has some impact (as there won't be more temperate summer weather you'd get in coastal areas)

I had to remember to consider average elevation for certain countries like Switzerland that are not that far north.

Agreed. My mind immediately went to "furthest north", so I got 8 out of 10 very quickly. Then after trying a several more incorrect answers, "high elevation" occurred to me, and I got the last 2.
