Otherwise Kona is good in winter, but getting up (steep) snowy/icy roads is not it's strength. I had this problem just a week ago and only getting the car up to speed before attacking the hill helped, so I succeeded on a third try. So you might consider studded tyres if you are driving on snow/ice a lot. I have Continental VikingContact 7 studless winter tyres. And as others have said be gentle with the acceleration pedal - if you get wheelspin on a climb the ESC will kill the speed and it is easy to get stuck.
