This one comes up more as theme parks in the snow than rollercoasters but here's Everland's pictures they put up in the snow from their Facebook page

I was actually just thinking earlier that it might be kind of cool for a park with a bunch of money to make snow with the snow machines that the ski resorts use for certain sections of the park for the holiday events. Could also have an ice skating pond too. Obviously try to keep it from getting on the coasters, but that would be a cool (pardon the pun) way to go for the extra mile for the guests who are paying to go to a park where most of the coasters can't operate.

^Everland does that to make snow slides for the guests and uses the freezing weather and them to manipulate and transform the panda area and safari rides: http://news.samsungcnt.com/everlands-snow-safari-welcomes-winter-fauna/

On my last winter visit to Fuji-Q they transformed the paddleboat area into an ice rink, not sure if they still do since it's been a long time since my last visit.

That's awesome. I think its smart for parks to extend their operating seasons as long as possible. They have a bunch of valuable land that's just sitting their idling otherwise. A lot of ski resorts try to make their resort useful and they schedule events in the summer too.
