A few suggestions off the hip:

Tchaikovsky: Symphony no 1 "Winter Daydreams"
Prokofiev: "Troika" from "Lieutenant KijÚ"
Larsson: A Winter's Tale

I don't know if it counts (I suppose it's winter all year round in the Antarctic) but my favourite evocation of a frozen scene is the "Landscape" movement from Vaughan Williams'  Sinfonia Antartica

These are perfect selections!!I would add Tapiola (brrrr) and En Saga and by Sibelius

Probably off the subject a bit, but one of the most chilling pieces is G÷sta Nystroem's Arctic Ocean (Ishavet or La mer arctique), symphonic poem after an unfinished ballet
