Try FDF-mod v1.3. It contains several winter maps (including the Winter Kolgujev/Nogojev) and there are plenty of missions availiable at the FDF-mod site.

You can get FDF 1.3 in the (newly reopened) addons depot. ;D

I actually prefer winter kolgujev  to winter Nogojev with my low end system. The forests in Nogojev lag my old PC big time. But if u have a reasonably fast PC you will be fine. The great thing about both islands, ofcourse, is that you can copy and paste any mission made in BIS Kolgujev to them  ;) . With a quick unit swap in the mission.sqm file to snow units you can very quickly accumulate some great snow missions.

I hear the FDF island is very good also, and if memory serves, I believe Avonlady has a total CWC snow conversion available on her website. Replay the game in winter  ;)

It's true there aren't enough winter missions, but the Missions Depot is a treasure trove.      Older missions are occasionally a little creaky but usually still fun.    MD scores use the full range from 0-10 (well ok, 9) so all the 5s are worth playing.    Many of the 3s and 4s are too, though its worth reading the review first.    1s are quite popular, and if they are addon-free sometimes worth it for the laugh.

The point is, you don't need to restrict yourself to high scoring or recent missions.
Plenty of reviewed ArmA missions for you to play

@mac: sure, i will play the lower rated missions too - i was only curious
 what you guys are playing right now ?   - i think i will play them all till OFP2 is out, whenever this will be  :-\  

your right with some missions...

i had my last laugh yesterday, when i had to drive my officer to a village as a first objective. we came to a crossroads when two russian tanks came from the left. the first one passed by, the second stopped right at my left side like he wants to wait for me to go on. just as i drove on, this tank rammed us, finishing our car.  >:(  the officer left the car, standing around-  no comment, that`s it - end of mission !  :D

please excuse my english...

Hey, winter missions...
Maybe before end of January I might get one going. Although I have like 4 other projects. ;) :P
Just got winter vehicles and Kolgujev winter. :)

Well I can't speak for everyone, but I don't play only one kind of mission. I play whatever I get or can download without lots of addons. Whether it be in the beta section, missions depot, missions from my team members, or where ever. ;D

You can never be to diverse, and it makes it all the much more fun. ::) :P

Also, for those missions, you can take any mission on Kolgujev and simply play that mission on the winter island.

The Avon Lady also made some conversions for people who wanted winter missions.
