I don't know what your experience level is but especially when it's cold I recommend you know your equipment in and out beforehand. It makes a miserable experience standing in cold wind and trying to figure out how something works.

Pretty comfortable with using the camera in a variety of conditions, particularly if I know what I'm up against going in.  So, I think I'm pretty cool with that aspect of this, anyway, including some of the technical side (exposure, ISO, etc.).  More focused on ideas for how to best take advantage of the environment and whether doing something like this on your own is practical (suspect the drive up and back is pretty wicked).
