Shotcrete is a functionally impermeable material when properly designed and placed. Thus, if water accumulates between the rock substrate and shotcrete, depending on temperatures and thickness of the shotcrete, it may freeze. As with all concrete, shotcrete material can be air-entrained to enhance resistance to freezing-and-thawing exposure. You should consult with an experienced engineer to determine whether the type of rock, geometry of the sections, and anchoring of the shotcrete (such as with soil nails or rock bolts), along with the bond of shotcrete to the rock, will provide the desired performance.
