Variable index of refraction and specularity, fresnel weighted reflection/refraction factor, normal-mapped lookup to environment maps, per-pixel evaluation of diffuse, specular and scattered lighting...

Depends on how photorealistic you want it to be [smile]

Looking into the various water-rendering algorithms/shaders (fresnel weighted reflection/refraction from Nik02's list) as they'll probably get you a very similar result. Just tweak the parameters accordingly to make it look more like ice [smile]
