You mean sea or snow as a day trip, right? There's not a lot of snow near Rome, the best snow places are in the Alps, several hours away by train. The options closest to Rome would be in the Abruzzo region. Sea could be more practical, and easy to reach with public transportation, you could go to Ostia by train, just a half hour away from Rome, but not that pretty, as the best beaches are either south or north of Rome, a bit farther than Ostia.

How about a day trip to the countryside instead? Orvieto would be a great destination...

You could take the train to Ostia Lido, just to see the sea; takes about 40 minutes. Other seaside towns reachable within an hour or so on train: Anzio and Nettuno.

For snow within an hour and a half to two hours: Terminillo, Campo Staffi and, in Abrozzo, Campo Felice is really popular. Try skiinfo.it for more info.

I'm sure there is a ski bus that will take you up to one of these resorts from Roma, but I'm out of the loop to be honest. I'm sure there will be info on the web site.
