You are suggested to follow the first route, since there are three trains from Shengyang to Baihe (the nearest station to the mountain), but only one from Jilin.
BTW, the three trains leave at 9:11, 18:54, and 20:18, which take 13h -13h 30 minutes, and CNY158/152 for a hard sleeper, CNY243/ 233 for a soft one.
After getting to Baihe, you can hire a private car to the mountain with a fare of about CNY150 for a round trip to the North Slope.

There may be some problems, and I’d like to give you suggestion.
The train from Baihe (Changbaishan) to Jilin leaves at 6:38, so you need to take it in the early morning.

It’s hard to snow town from Jilin, actuall, you can go to Harbin first and then to the snow town.
Harbin - snow town : take a train to Yabuli and then hire a car there. The car costs around CNY500, but you can share it with other visitors.
