The Ice Spikes biome was added to Minecraft in The Update That Changed the World in October 2013. They are made of packed ice blocks which are slippier than regular ice blocks. You will find plenty of snow in this biome, along with structures, such as glaciers. The biome is generated only in cold and arctic regions.
Ice Spikes are tall, tower-like structures made of packed ice blocks that can be found in the snowy tundra biome and the ice plains spikes biome. The biome is a rare version of the Tundra biome. The Ice Spikes are enormous and towering, and can be found all over the landscape. The spikes don’t just stick out of the surface, they also penetrate deep underground and come in several sizes. There are short, wide ones that are fairly common, and rarer, thinner ones that stretch as high as 50 blocks above the ground.
Since this is a very cold biome, the number of passive mobs that are spawned is very low. The only passive and neutral mobs that spawn here are goats. Hostile mobs that spawn here are the usual bunch that can be found across the Overworld. Creepers, spiders, endermen, zombies, skeletons, and witches will spawn in this biome regularly.
