Wow! This reminds me of a TV special (Discovery Channel?) that showed this European "sport" of water sliding down these glacier channels. What they did was put a net down at the bottom of the channel where the water went into the glacier and then hiked/climbed up a ways, got on a boogie board, and zoomed down the channel, sort of like a slip-n-slide or wet bobsled run but cut into a glacier. It looked awesome - just make sure your net holds ;-)
