One more thing - batteries have less power in the cold, so if you carry a spare, keep it close to your body until you need it.

In the inside pockets, not outside jacket pockets, or backpack pockets.   And if you're not going to be using it for many hours, you might consider taking the battery out of the camera as well.  I lost half a charge on a 7d battery sleeping overnight on the lower slopes of Kilimanjaro.  Fortunately I had a second battery and (for better or worse), was a bit too 'drunk' from altitude to need all of the next battery during the climb.
