I had a look some time ago but without thinking at seasonal roads.

For mountain pass in Alps, this could be just

access:conditional = no @ Nov-Apr

For African tracks, something like

smoothness:conditional = horrible @ May-Oct
smoothness:conditional = very_horrible @ Nov-Apr

or

smoothness = horrible
smoothness:conditional = very_horrible @ Nov-Apr


All with seasonal=yes to indicate the random aspect of the time condition.

Do you agree?
