If this is his first winter with you, I wouldn't keep him outside during the cold months. I would keep him warm throughout winter just in the case he has some kind of illness(es). When they hibernate, the immune system is shut down and other bodily functions also slow down dramatically as well, and if they are not healthy to begin with, they could die during brumating.
