Sand will be cold. That's not really the point though. Cold might be the least of the OP's worries. If they have a tiny coop the chickens aren't likely to spend a lot of time in there anyway so poop removal will be a bigger priority. If they have no run or a run that doesn't allow them to get out of the wind and snow then they will be spending more time in the coop so shavings that provide something to scratch around in for enrichment might be a bigger priority.
Without more information about the specifics of the OP's coop, it makes no sense to offer a suggestion. The OP asked if there was something "easier" to maintain. Since we have no idea how they maintain it now, there's no way to suggest something easier. Plus, something that seems to make it "easier" might actually add more work or headaches further down the line.
