Winter was a season of the year on certain planets, and often associated with colder temperatures. Humans, Bajorans, Mintakans, Tamarians and Teplans were among the species that acknowledged it. A non-natural occurrence of this was known as a nuclear winter.
When Phlox told Jonathan Archer about his annual hibernation in 2151, Archer asked whether he'd be without his doctor that winter, but Phlox assured him he'd only sleep for six days. (ENT: "Dear Doctor")
In 2152, Tessic told Archer the people in his colony had three months of good weather to pump and refine deuterium before winter came. With the deuterium left to them, after most of it was stolen by Klingons each year, they usually made enough profit to get through the winter. (ENT: "Marauders")
In 2369, Bajor began a project to tap the molten core of one of its moons, Jeraddo. Minister Toran was confident that the energy would heat "a few hundred thousand Bajoran homes" in the coming winter. (DS9: "Progress")
As of 2370, the last winter on Bajor had been a long one. The concern about another such long winter occurring was one of the reasons given for denying the Skrreea settling on Bajor; in contrast, the winters on Draylon II were said to be "mild". (DS9: "Sanctuary")
The same year, after Keiko O'Brien told him that people "naturally slow down" when they got older, Miles O'Brien indignantly replied the "like molasses in winter". Several days later, Quark told O'Brien that money from a racquetball match between Julian Bashir and himself would go to the Bajoran War Orphans Fund so that they could buy winter blankets for Bajoran war orphans. (DS9: "Rivals")
At one point, the people of Kelis' homeworld had sacrificed people yearly in honor of winter but this practice had ended by 2376. Dilithium was referred to as "Winter's tears" on the planet. (VOY: "Muse")
