Make sure that the fork isn't an elastomer-based system, like the old Rock Shox Judy forks or the older Manitou forks. The elastomer bumpers get hard in the cold and lose all their travel. I'd recommend a used Marzocchi coil spring fork. They always work, and you don't have to worry about air seals leaking or getting cracked in the cold. I rode my Fox Float RLC through most of last winter, and it was fine. Rebound was a little slow, but that was it. This year, I'm going fully rigid with spiked knobbies. Not super smooth, but it's a pretty light setup.
