I've had skirts on through winter and no freeze up. Well, actually it was the car that had the skirts.

And I've had cars with no skirts totally get the wheelwells packed with frozen slush to where the car would barely be able to steer until I got out, laid on the ground, and kicked the ice out. I'm very glad there were no skirts in the way for that condition.

I guess I'd say run the skirts but they should be easy to take off if needed. Or if you are in an area that sees those ice-up conditions more than rarely, run without the skirts for those few months.
