A: "The difference between the winter and summer weather in this country is huge!" is far more natural. This way you are implying hot and cold through saying the seasons.

If you wanted to use hot and cold specifically you could say:
"The difference between the heat of the summer and cold of the winter is huge in this country!" but this sounds a little awkward.

Or to change the original sentence a little:
"The difference between the warmth and cold in a year is huge in this country!". It's not the most natural, but your meaning would be understood.
