There is the Rite of Channeling that allows you to pass the Frostbite ability to the Monstie of your choice. You will be informed about this mechanics in Rutoh Village after you have completed some main quests. Some monsters such as Zamtrios and Lagombi already have the gene to withstand Frostbite.
