Downhill Skiing Sugar Cookies

The boys were headed out skiing for New Year's Day.  I'll ski, but skiing it isn't my favorite winter activity.  I'd rather run or snowshoe- avoiding lifts and lines, a lot of people and the price of a lift ticket- or stay home and decorate cookies.  I had some skiing cookies in mind with a set of round cookies.  I started frosting some cookies New Year's Eve day.
 The cookies were frosted with vanilla frosting and covered with white sanding sugar:
Then I began adding pretty sugar pearls.  Large pearls for the 12 o'clock, 3 o'clock, 6 o'clock & 9 o'clock positions and small sugar pearls for the rest of the o'clock numbers.  Right before I started piping clock hands with countdown numbers:  10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1...I remembered I was going to make a set of skiing cookies with the round cookies- not countdown clocks for New Year's Eve.  I bet they would have been pretty clocks.
 The sugar pearls were replaced by tree sprinkles:
I started doing individual cookies and then decided to put them together to create a downhill scene...as though you are looking at the ski mountain (similar to the golf cookie scene I created this summer).  The skiers were created with black frosting in a Ziploc bag with a tiny corner snipped for piping.
My brother said I should have included a yard sale.  Don't get it?  A yard sale refers to a skier or snowboarder who crashes and loses skis in one direction, poles in another, and hat & gloves scattered about the hill.
Now go hit the slopes!
