Thanks so much for downloading Yellowlane's Winter Games icons! I do hope you enjoy them.

These icons are inspired by a couple of my favorite things to do when I'm not sitting behind my Mac — Skiing and Snowboarding. I've attempted to create a bit of community with these icons, including some colorful characters to brighten up your desktop.

Before I go too far though... Icons in Mac OS X rock! I've tried to create some of the icons where they can be layered, as you will see below. The possibilities are endless. Have fun stacking these up on your desktop!

Some of the icons are definitely taken from specific memories of mine during time I've spent in the Southern Rockies (Yes, the broken wrist really happened). Others are purely fictional, and figments of my imagination (or perhaps representations of who I'd be if I could be a ski bum!) Unfortunately, as time is always a constraint, I have not been able to put into icon form all the ideas I have had. So perhaps there will be a Winter Games 2 coming soon. We shall see!

Without Further Ado: Many thanks go to Joel, Rich, Mark, Chris, Wesso, and Keith for making the annual Red River trips with me. Thanks to Jon-Jon, L'il Robbie, Brandon, and Dewey for keeping me primed during the off-season. Long live the Caribel, The Lift House, The Sundance, Texas Reds, and Shotgun Willies. And special thanks to Drew Judycki, for getting us lift tickets every year —you rock!

More Thanks: To Rob, for keeping me up to speed with all that is OS X and more — and for actually USING my icons. Thanks to Jon for your endless encouragement. Thanks to Jenni and Mrs. Bodiford, for being Super-Fans! And finally, thanks to all who have downloaded the Macintosh Garden, Café Macintosh, and Cute Feet icons. You have kept me inspired and motivated!

Most Special-est Thanks: To my biggest fan: My beloved and beautiful wife Rachel, thanks for your constant love and the creativity that you bring to me. And thanks for bringing me cookies and ice cream too! I love you!
