The only thing I see in the data base so far is
surface=ice_road, six times, and
We find it mentioned here, under "surface=" which might not be
optimal, but is true, and observable by other mappers.
access=seasonal may be our best bet for now, given than trying to be
more-exact is likely to be more misleading. After all, some maps
don't even show where traffic_signals are located, and drivers still
manage to obey them fairly often. Perhaps we can count on drivers to
not drive into open water? ;-)
