"Frazil ice" at Yosemite

In Minnesota we would call this "slush."  The rangers at Yosemite refer to it as "frazil ice," which seems a little different from the definitions I've read, which require supercooled water.  Whatever... we'll concede the word, because the behavior of the ice is so ... can we say "cool?"
