I have a friend, Richard Lauzon who operates Ten Mile Lodge in Northern Quebec. He lives at his resort year round. He flies a Merlin with Rotax 912S on FULL LOTUS floats all year. He has over 200 hrs flying in the winter on the Full Lotus instead on skis. It handles like a drunken hovercraft on the ground but you dont worry about falling through thin ice or getting stuck in slush. Great fishing at Ten Mile... he even has a dirt strip for wheel STOL aircraft.
