“In the whiteout, I made out just a glimpse of black… There was a slice of open water, really deep fast moving current right next to the shoreline…. That was a really dangerous situation. It would have been very easy to ski into that, and it was surrounded by ice that would have collapsed and the whole thing would have just floated under the ice.” – Will Steger, May 13, 2018. Thelon River, NWT. Day 55.
