Speak and I shout

You say it once and I come aloud

For I say alike

Invisible to your eyes,

Ears are my friend,

Because they understand.

To be my friend you have to take a hike,

Where its all crisp and white.

Tell me what am I?

It's probably

echo

Speak and I shout

echo is a sound

You say it once and I come aloud
For I say alike

it just "repeats" what you say

Invisible to your eyes,

sound is invisible

Ears are my friend,
Because they understand.

but you hear the echo

To be my friend you have to take a hike,
Where its all crisp and white.

the mountain is often a great place to hear your echoecho

  • $\begingroup$ The only bit that I find confusing is 'speak and I shout' as it implies the reply to your speech is louder, although this could be a quirk of the question. Nevertheless, +1 for a good answer, and one that sounds correct overall. $\endgroup$ – Phylyp Jun 8 '18 at 12:41

    $\begingroup$ I also thought about that, I personally would have say it the other way, "shout and i speak" since echo can't be louder than the initial sound and usually we cause an echo by yelling. But the rest seemed to fit so well that I kept it $\endgroup$ – Kant1 Jun 8 '18 at 12:53
  • $\begingroup$ Agreed, @Kant1 , everything else fits perfectly. $\endgroup$ – Phylyp Jun 8 '18 at 12:54

A slightly different take on Kant1's answer, I'd guess you are:

AN AVALANCHE

Speak and I shout
You say it once and I come aloud

A relatively small sound (like people speaking loudly) can trigger an avalanche in popular culture (e.g. Tintin in Tibet)
Yet, with that sound, the avalanche makes a much louder thundering sound

For I say alike
Invisible to your eyes,
Ears are my friend,
Because they understand.

The start of an avalanche is often heard/felt than seen, especially if the mountainside is cloudy

To be my friend you have to take a hike,
Where its all crisp and white.

You need a snowy mountain as one of the pre-requisites for an avalanche
