    What do you call a person who likes cold weather and has problems with hot weather and a person who likes hot weather and has problems with cold weather?

    There isn't a designated word for it. You would only say 'Joe prefers/likes cold/hot weather.
    I'm not a teacher yet, but I am studying a Bachelor of Education with an English Literature major at Charles Sturt University, in NSW, Australia.

    If someone really enjoys going to countries where the heat is extreme, I might refer to them as a "heat freak", as far as holidays are concerned. I don't think I would use "cold freak" though, mainly because there aren't many people who go on holiday to particular countries because the weather is intensely cold.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
