Yes, fossils can be formed in ice.


In fact, refrigeration is the best means of preserving ancient remains.

The remains of animals trapped in ice — such as woolly mammoths — have been found with flesh, skin, and hair intact.

For example, in 1907, a Siberian nomad discovered the fossil of a baby woolly mammoth that had been frozen in the permafrost for 42 000 years.
