This is not unique, the Appalachian mountain range is full of them. If you visit NY, go to the Catskills and see the Ice Caves. It's very fascinating.

I have been to one in West Virginia. It was pretty wild walking up a mountain in the forest on a muggy 85 degree day to walk by these vents on the side of the mountain and get blasted with air so cold that there were ice formations jutting out from the vent due to condensing, freezing humidity.

I read a bit too fast and was wondering what the hell an "Ice Mice" was. . .

Also thought it said "Ice Nine." Was about to cancel my vacation to San Lorenzo.

Over on the other side of the country, at the northern end of California, there's a similar phenomenon at the Lava Beds National Monument. There are a few underground caverns where ice forms in small pools on the floors floor from condensation. The insulated walls are tubes produced by lava flowing from a volcano at least 30,000 years ago. They originated from the outer portion of the flow cooling and solidifying, allowing the inside to sink further downward, pulling in air from the surface. With the cold air sinking and hot air rising, it becomes a refrigerator inside. There's little to no humidity, though, so you don't see as much ice.

I went there once in the summer, but I'd imagine they're colder in the winter since the ground surrounding it doesn't get as hot.

I don't know why you're all so upset.  All I did was dump the leftover ice from my cup into the ocean.
