North of Alftand and west of Saarthal is an ancient mammoth partially frozen in a glacier. The mammoth has a few Dwarven spears stuck in its side, as well as several Dwarven arrows, indicating that the Dwemer may have killed the beast.
There's also a leveled Two-Handed weapon stuck in its back, which may be difficult to retrieve. The glacier can be climbed, allowing the Dragonborn to jump on the beast's back to reach it. On top of the glacier are more mammoth skeletons. On the ground nearby is a orichalcum ore vein.
