Mounted combat is effective against trolls. They are rather slow. Use your horse to evade them as your shoot arrows from a safe distance. Weapons with fire enchantments are particularly effective against them. Taking down a troll is entirely possible at level 6 or less if you use your brain, not your brawn.

Or use Flames ... basic spell As for the remark pickpocket and use those perks in combat ... well you need a level in that perk tree to invest the perks so that's also not a real option ...

You could reduce the difficulty in options.

Just dont fight trolls till your better. Or get some more combat options. I find the fire rune spell softens them up nicely and paralysis poison puts them down for a few vital seconds of hacking

While enemies do level with the player, Skyrim is not a status quo game. Some enemies will get you running at low levels. Other enemies fill the sky with fire that incinerates even high level characters.

Still, the general consensus seems to be that Skyirm is too easy and amount of money vs. the need to use it is completely off the scale.

Be patient. First run is about adventure. Enemies an locations are new and exciting. You will occasionally get mauled in pieces, but that only keeps you on your toes, while exploring ruins and dungeons in the wilderness.

About your question:
Run. Run! Ruuuuuuuun....!

That was my solution, when I first encountered a snow troll; ran all the way down from the mountain to get someone to help me. Now I am playing with the highest difficulty and damn furball does note even manage to scratch my low level character.

Possibly because your only lvl 6!

Running is good exercise. Also, don't forget you don't have to outrun the Snow Troll, you just have to outrun your followers.

Just level up. I possibly forgetting how hard it was to fight trolls as low-level character. Level 50, two spriting hits with Dragonbone sword and frost troll is dead.

At level 6 RUN

@Mage This, thanks for the morning giggle, you just gotta out run your followers
Put it on Legendary, then complain.

At a low level, dual casting the flame spell works well, especially since frost trolls have increased vulnerability to fire damage. You do need a decent supply of magicka potions, however (they can easily be crafted from common ingredients like red mountain flowers and Mora Tapinella).

Skyrim hard? Oh god. Anyway you can change difficulty level.

If you're an archer, you can snipe the snow troll on the 7,000 steps up to High Hrothgar. Just before you reach him, there's a climbable slope to your right. Lydia can't climb it but you can, and you can hop and climb your way to a rocky shelf from where you can see him and his cave. He can't get to you and won't even try, so you can pick him off at your leisure.

Alternatively, you can run like hell and leave Lydia for bait. Since she can't be killed by a mob and she won't stop fighting, she'll keep pecking away at him until he's dead. When she revives, she'll catch up with you.

If you HAVE to fight him toe to toe, any flame spell or flame-enhanced weapon is good, since he has a weakness to fire. But at level 6 you're unlikely to survive.

On my recent playthrough, I'm sad to admit that I had to take a strategic exit from the fight with that troll on the 7000 steps :( My lowly assassin-type character couldn't go toe-to-toe with a troll for a while. That said, even still if I confront a strong enemy I can still get killed easily sometimes. Unless you have a full-on tank build, just standing and swinging is going to get you killed, so don't be afraid to dance around or retreat if necessary, especially at a lower level.
Also, don't forget to SAVE A LOT.
