I'll cover 4 good Pokemon for a hail team.

1) Abomasnow
Abomasnow is vital for a Hail team, as he sets it up with Snow Warning right away. It is one of the two Megas that function decently in Hail (the other being Mega Glalie, who lives only to Explode.) So here's a Mega Abomasnow set:
Abomasnow @ Abomasite
Ability: Soundproof -> Snow Warning
Brave Nature
252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SpA
-Leech Seed
-Wood Hammer
-Ice Shard
-Blizzard

2) Walrein
Walrein serves as the best of walls under hail. It gets Ice Body and Aqua Ring, and it can hold Leftovers, allowing it to heal 18.75% of its health each turn. Here's a Walrein moveset:
Walrein @ Leftovers
Ability: Ice Body
Calm Nature
252 HP / 252 SpD / 4 SpA
-Substitute
-Aqua Ring
-Scald
-Ice Beam/Blizzard
The only reason you should run Ice Beam on this set is if Hail runs out by the time Walrein's on the field,

3) Mamoswine
Mamoswine has great HP and Attack, so I think he fits the role of mildly offensive Hail setter.
Mamoswine @ Focus Sash
Ability: Snow Cloak
Adamant Nature
252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Def
-Hail
-Icicle Crash
-Earthquake
-Knock Off

4) Regice
Regice has awesome Special Defense and respectable Defense and Special Attack, but his Speed is trash! So here's an offensive RP Regice:

MY BODY IS REGI (Regice) @ Life Orb
Ability: Ice Body
Modest Nature
252 SpA / 252 Spe / 4 HP
-Rock Polish
-Thunderbolt
-Ice Beam
-Focus Blast

That's all I got for now, hope I helped!

+1 for the Glalie part and MY BODY IS REGI!
Hey thanks :D
avalugg, not even talonflame can kill it
0 SpA Talonflame Overheat vs. 248 HP / 0 SpD Avalugg: 402-474 (102.2 - 120.6%) -- guaranteed OHKO
Overheat Talonflame is a thing...
No way... Humph wow, I meant the physical one(me first talon flame is a talonflame counter)

a very good poke would be an avalugg because it is a super-tank for defence, it also cannot be one-shot because of sturdy but its ice body really compliments its using hail, I would suggest using avalugg for multi battle proposes if you plan to have it with the ice body ability (sturdy is its hidden ability so you may want to trade with a friend for that ability
Pokémon: Avalugg
Item: Leftovers/shell bell
Nature: adamant/brave/impish/relaxed
Ability: Sturdy
Attacks
-Hail
-ice fang, good stab, one of the few physical ice type attacks
-rapid spin, to take away hazards
-skull bash, to raise defence and deal damage
252 evs in defence and attack, 4 in sp-def

Castform would be an excellent addition because it would get a stab/ 100% accuracy with blizzard
Item: Life orb
Nature: Modest
Ability: Forecast
Attacks
-Weather ball during the effects of any weather condition it turns into a 100 power attack and used as a last resort random mega charizard y battle
-Blizzard for obvious reasons
-Hydro pump, for dealing with those pesky fire types
-Cosmic power, it might take quite a bit of chain breeding to get this move but it raises both of its defences by one stage making it harder to kill
EVS: 252 SpAtt, 252 HP, 4 speed

One poke that most people would not think of is slowbro on a hail team.
Item: Slowbroite
Ability: Any
Nature: Quiet/Relaxed
Attacks
-Surf, most powerful special water type attack that can be learned by slowbro
-Blizzard, for obvious reasons
-Psychic, good stab and for obvious reasons
-Trick room, because most ice types are very slow this makes them a very large threat along with making mega slowbro one as well.
EVS: 252 SpAtt, 252 Def, 4 SpDef
