Not everyone lives where it never snows and get to fly all year around. Snow is annoying and sometimes cuts people off from flying for a few months. It does help because you can build in the off months but you get the urge to fly and just want to get out there. If you want to go out and fly you can get a pair of snow skis for your plane. Snow skis are a great buy and it makes flying in the winter fun and easy. They make skis for any plane even tail draggers. I would first try flying a trainer plane with them on then move to a plane you enjoy flying because skis take a little bit to get use to. you have to practice with them on because planes with skis on take off and land different. It also helps if your runway is smooth so it will make it easier to practice. Once you get the hang of it you will now be able to fly in the winter. You can find snow skis on RC plane sites and a good company to start with is Dubro they also make great parts. Dubro also sells on Tower hobbies.
