1) I used to teach adult students who had recently arrived in Canada. Based on observation I can say there are two ways for someone to deal with winter:
The Successful Way - getting out and being active in the snow (ski, skate, play in the snow with your kids and your dog, etc)
The Unsuccessful Way - Try to avoid cold and snow. This leads to misery.

2) Gymnastics and swimming - sounds as if she'll be a natural for water-ramp training for jumping!

3) I used to feel depressed for days after ski season ended. Even at 42 I felt that same way when Blackcomb closed for the season (even though Whistler is still open!).
