Scott Fischer, a volunteer with the Juneau Nordic Ski Club, stands next to the recovered snowmachine at the West Glacier Trailhead on Thursday. Fischer broke through the ice into about two feet of overflow while grooming a skiing track on Wednesday. "I thought I was swimming at first," said Fischer. Fischer was able to crawl out and get word out about the dangerous ice conditions of Mendenhall Lake. The snowmachine was held up by thicker ice until volunteers could retrieve it on Thursday.
