You are right vent vent vent . In this old two story house the ceilings up stairs go at an angle for a ways then flat across the middle . So the part that is angled is just four inches from the roof boards . No way to vent easy .
What I did was tear off all the roof shingles down to the boards . stripped it with 2x4's and put a new deck on then new shingles . at the eves I put the ventilated drip edge and peak ventalation plus vents in three gable ends it really helped with ice but I still get some . I just keep an eye on it and if it gets to bad I waits till a day thats above freezing and try and get it off .
