"During" seasons

"During" seasons

Can "en hiver" also be translated as "during the winter"/"in wintertime" or would I have to say "pendant l'hiver" or something else?  The translation "in winter" doesn't seem like common phrasing it seems almost like the beginning of a scientific statement and I'm bound to over-translate it.

en hiver -- in the winter.
pendant l'hiver is also possible but not so common.
