Climate B is by far more interesting. April would be the snowiest month...right before the beginning of a very wet and humid summer, especially in comparison to the rest of the year. September through November would feature extremely sunny conditions and brown vegetation, despite the past summer's rain, due to...whatever causes the vegetation to brown in the fall. December to January would start to see very light snowfall accumulating to about 3" in depth. Summer would feature routine thunderstorms during May to July.

Climate A is incredibly snowy, obviously. A 7-day forecast for this location in most months would look like:
M 27/21 - Light Snow - 2"
T 29/20 - Snow - 3-6"
W 22/17 - Snow - 4-6"
TH 22/18 - Light Snow - 2-4"
F 21/16 - Mostly Cloudy
S 22/18 - Mostly Cloudy
S 24/22 - Heavy Snow - 8-12"

Not much else to say for that one.

At first I thought climate A was in Celsius. I was like, how is that a cold climate.

If both A and B are in Celsius, I prefer climate A

Btw, your climate A (assuming it's in Fahrenheit) is mostly definitely on top of a sheet of ice.

They're both horrendous... but if I was forced to choose... would be climate B...
at least Climate B is livable for half the year.

This is a tough one. I prefer the conditions in climate A, but would get sick of it after a while. Climate B's winters are too cold and the summer, albeit short, is too warm and humid. The constantly sunny and dry weather of autumn would get old after a while too. But with that said, I would hesitantly choose B since there's some variety.

Choosing B purely because it's more interesting.

Is there such a climate like climate A? It's like a warmer version of the South Pole!

B.

Climate B easily.
The first one is worse than any subantarctic island.
A side issue, an April-May seasonal warm peak is not feasible at polar latitudes - unless this is extreme tropical alpine in the Northern Hemisphere -like the top of Mount Everest.
