Castile, New York: Letchworth State Park (Winter)
Letchworth State Park obviously is a different place in the winter than the summer. For one thing, most of it is closed. The only accessible area is from the west, around Castile, and most of the road to the north and south is blocked off.
However, there is a nice hill for winter sledding with a warm lodge (big fireplace) at the bottom. There is cross-country skiing. And a few of the scenic outlooks are open to tourists, if you don't mind a little snow. Just walk carefully. The one above is from Big Bend; the ice on the sides of the rock is pretty impressive.
