Continental Ice Tour

Yesterday, Dec 21, I had an aerial ice tour courtesy of Delta, flying from Seattle to Portland. Numerous ice covered ponds and lakes from western Minnesota most of the way east, most with apparent thin snow and grey cracks where water had seeped through, as seen from 35,000 Ft. and 500 + MPH. Winny and Sebago still wet. Wentworth looked pretty good from maybe 10,000 Ft. in fact better than most. I could not drop a brick on it, the flyers test for thickness. Does this count as ice boating time?
