Jaskinia Mroźna is called Frosty Cave or Ice Cave as it is rather cold because of its altitude. As a result there are only few speleothems. The cave is entered through an artificial tunnel and left through a natural entrance, the tour is a through trip. The cave has a single, more or less horizontal passage.
The Koscieliska Brook appears in the cave and at one point forms the Sabalowe Jeziorko (Sabala Lake).
