Hurray for another snow map! Probably my last one for a while.

The name derives from the ice crystals that are partly covering the houses of this city.

In regards to to creeps, creeping routes, item drops and gold mines, there are no big surprises.

Here are some concerns of mine:
- The walkable area in the center may overall be too narrow
- There may not be enough buildable terrain in the center
- The area behind the central gold mines is accessible, especially near to Merc Camps. I could fix that though, if deemed necessary
- AoW spots near the base are either too unrewarding (lvl 7 with a lvl 1 item) or perhaps too difficult (lvl 12 and in the direct path to the enemy base)
- Neighboring creep camps may trigger each other
- No lvl 5 item as of yet
- No need to leave your comfort zone as there are plenty of creeps available in the top and bottom areas of the map
Feel free to provide input on any of those points!

The map still needs a little polishing in the corners, but I think it's good enough to be thrown out there at this point.
