How to Get to Frosting in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet
If you haven’t unlocked the Pokemon Center near Frosting yet, the easiest way to get to it in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet is to head out the south door of Mount Ice and follow the path up and around the mountain, leading to the southeast.
If you haven’t made it to Glazed yet, you can get there by following the main path up the mountain northeast of Medali.
If you’re getting lost, remember to set Glazed as your destination on your map to ensure it appears as a waypoint on your minimap. Once you’re there, you’ll find the Gym in front of the Pokemon Center, down a slope.
Snow Slope Run location in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet for the Glazed Gym test
To start the Snow Slope Run you need find the employee in front of the Pokémon Center, next to the snowman. Go back up the slope and you will see a person with a gold text box on top of him. Talk to this staff member to start the trial.
The Gym Frosting event pits you against the clock in a downhill race. You will have 90 seconds to complete the short descent, and you will need to go through checkpoints along the way.

How to beat Grusha, the Ice Gym Leader, in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
Grusha, Frosting’s Gym Leader, loves Ice-type Pokémon, and his team reflects that.
Ice-type Pokémon are weak to Fire, fight, rock and steel.
This means that you will easily defeat Grusha if you choose Fuecoco or Quaxly as your starter, since Fuecoco is a Dual Ghost and Fire type, and Quaxy is a Dual Fighting and Water type. If you chose Sprigatito instead, go with strong Pokemon on your team that have strong Fire, Fighting, Rock, or Steel moves.
Just make sure not to use Flying, Ground, Grass, or Dragon-types, as they are vulnerable to Ice.
Remember, like all Gym Leaders, Grusha will terastize his last Pokémon, so even if it isn’t an Ice type to start with, it will turn into one.
Grusha’s Pokémon team is:
|Frost||47||Ice / Bug||Fire, Flying, Rock and Steel|
|bartic||47||Ice||Fire, fight, rock and steel|
|cetitan||47||Ice||Fire, fight, rock and steel|
Ground Type: Ice
|Dragon, Fairy, Ice and Rock
Terra Type: Fire, Fighting, Rock and Steel
For defeating Grusha, you will receive 8640 prize money, TM124 Ice Spinner and a gym badge – Increasing the level cap for Pokémon to hear you and make them easier to catch will depend on where you are in the Victory Road story.
Also, depending on where you are on Victory Road, you might have a battle with Nemona after you beat Grusha.
Who will you face next on Victory Road? Will it be Katy, Brassius, Kofu, Iono, Larry, Ryme or Tulip? Or maybe you’re ready to battle the Elite Four and the Top Champion! If you want to take a break from gyms, you can also tackle the Path of Legends and Starfall Street stories.
