You sure can.Winter prep is just a little different.We get snow in PA all the time,and some others here keep them where it snows a bunch. Cold and snoww won't hurt the bees if taken care of proper.

Gazinga, welcome to our forum, so nice that you have found us.   You will love to keep bees.  This can be that place where you can spend great time, a place to learn, tell your stories, tales and experiences and also make some new and great friends. Stick around.  Have that wonderful and most awesome day, love life, great health.  Cindi
