In my world, there is a forest of giant trees on both poles. The trees create a canopy that is perpetually covered in ice. This frozen canopy extends so high that it supports a "land" of frozen clouds. There live the Yeti of this world.
How strong could this frozen cloud land be? Is it strong enough to support a village of 100 humans (although they are Yetis instead of humans)?
I'm imagining it will be more like frozen snow, instead of a block of ice, but I can be wrong. The strength of the canopy is assumed to be strong enough for any mass of the solid ice needed.
This frozen cloud would have some parts extending away from the canopy. My main concern is how strong this extension will be, and how to calculate the minimum thickness of the extension and how far it can be.
