Is it normal for a skin tone to get lighter in winter even if in the sun?

In brief: Yes

Even if you're getting sun during the winter, it's generally colder so most people cover up more of their body and don't spend as much time outdoors which also decreases the amount of sun exposure.
Days are shorter and have less opportunities for sun exposure during winter. This all makes the skin look lighter.
