Was the ice clear? I find that real unnerving. On Wasilla lake one winter while skiing on it, the weather was real cold and while going across it, the ice looked three ft thick it really messes with your mind when you hear it fracture. We went up on the Nelchina Glacier, thats the one by Eureka Lodge, the approach up to the glacier is via a braided river. The temperature had been so cold that the ice was crystal clear and you were able to see the water movement below

You really have to be careful on the rivers and lakes a friend of mine really got messed up hitting a pressure ridge in the middle of Lake Louise

Do you have any pictures?
