Ice Glide (Ex)

A greater ice elemental can burrow through nonmagical ice and snow like a fish swims through water. This leaves no trace or tunnel. Casting a control gravity spell on the area where a greater ice elemental is burrowing flings the creature back 30 feet, stunning it for 1 round, unless it succeeds at a DC 15 Fortitude save.

Ice Walking (Ex)

A greater ice elemental can climb icy surfaces as per the spider climb spell. It takes no penalty when doing so and does not need to make Acrobatics checks when running or charging on ice.

Numbing Cold (Su)

Each time a greater ice elemental deals cold damage with its slam attack, the target must succeed on a Fortitude save or be staggered for one round.

Snow Vision (Ex)

A greater ice elemental’s vision is unaffected in snow and is suffers no penalties in snowy conditions.


Environment any land or water (Plane of Water)
Organization solitary, pair, or gang (3–8)
