Winter vocab - activities and clothes

Own source

It's still a winter season in Poland, so I thought that some of you may find the winter vocabulary useful.
Poland has beautiful mountains in the south with many great skiing and snowboarding resorts. Polish three main mountain chains are: Góry Świętokrzyskie, Karpaty and Sudety. Personally, I am more of a hiking fan than a skiing fan (oops...), and trust me, Poland has some breathtaking views to offer.
My favorite winter activities are: hiking, snowball wars, making a snowman, sleigh ride ("kulig") and drinking hot chocolate! What about you?
For pronunciation, I recommend a Google Translator - it's pretty good! Have fun!
