Have you picked a certification body yet?
It looks like a CB picked him instead, as he wrote

I am writing guidelines for the CB on "normal operating conditions" that is why I am asking the questions.
As for the underlying question, normal operating conditions is when the organization is delivering it's "normal" intended output, and there are no unusual/unexpected extraordinary circumstances affecting it's ability to produce it's products or deliver it's services.

There will always be organizations that are affected by seasonal issues. The example you gave is one. A farm where harvesting only happens ever so often is another.

A CB must use common sense to determine when the to schedule an audit so the assessment is done during a time when the system is operational and the risks and processes put in place to manage such risks can be demonstrated effectively.

In the example you cited, if the first stage 2 audit is done during the winter, the scope of certification could be limited to winter related activities and, in the summer, the scope of certification could be expanded to include summer related activities.

Good luck.
Thanks to Sidney Vianna for your informative Post and/or Attachment!
