But aren't winter warfare and mountain warfare two different things? I can see some overlap, particularly in the use of ski troops. But "winter warfare" as seen in the Winter War and on the Eastern Front in WW2 is basically conventional warfare conducted in extreme climatic conditions, while mountain warfare tends to employ troops with both specialized training (such as climbing) and equipment (mountain guns).
