Oil change - Winter?

Engine and final drive oil change is due.
Any recommendations on whether doing that before or after winter hibernation?

Before winter..... because floating particels will settle when not moved and then the first gulp of oil that the bearings will get is that.

I change before winter, so it sits with clean fresh oil.
