Also look for more flexible props, there are wide differences in compounds. Cold weather can make them more brittle too. Landing gear needn’t be mega heavy if you use thinner lightweight wheels and 2mm wire. Keep the gear near the CG, if it’s a choice of near the nose or toward the back, nose side is better, since you can counter that more easily. I find my bulkheads break before my props but it’s been above freezing here most of this month.
The prop will keep freewheeling if the airspeed is up, even with the throttle off. You could try flaring more onto the tail as you land, to keep the prop up until the last minute.
“Arrestor grass” is handy, as is a soft field, but when it’s snowy or frozen both can be in short supply.
