/ year round ice climbing
Mt Blanc de Tacul in the Vallee Blanche has a couple of ice routes (Chere COuloir, Contamine-Mazeaud etc) that are year round.
Alternatively take a wander up the Mer de Glace and find some crevasses!
As others have said, pretty much the only easily accessible place for year round stuff is the Alps. Unless you're looking to do overhanging seracs and ED silly, there's no need for ice specific year round training for the Alps but Scottish winter experience will stand you in good stead, as will a week in Rjukan etc. You could always do some dry tooling to keep in shape.
