Do 1.5 hours in the morning, then another hour that night. Other choices would include getting a mountain bike and ride it in the snow. If you have one already, put some fenders on it and go.

If its not a lot of snow and you don't mind dirt/water/salt on your bike (which is really not all that bad once you clean it up) just ride outside. Even better, get a training bike.

You could also go out for 1.5 hours, come back, warm up, put on new dry clothes, go out again for another hour or two. Besides, where did you hear you gotta ride 3-4 hours for a long ride? 2 hours on rollers is bearable (for me at least) and counts for more hours on the road because there are no hills on rollers. I don't see any benefit of breaking up a long ride onto many short ones cause it becomes just that - many short rides.
