This picture was taken with a Sigma 50 mm macro lens. I shoot under a 40 watt spot bulb with the white balance set for incandescent light. The f stop is 22 and the shutter speed is 15

I've read about putting the camera into a ziplock back before bringing it inside.. anything else?
Not worried about the battery drain, more worried about protecting the camera itself.
Get some practice shooting the snow as it creeps down the mountains Dave. I find that defining the sky / snow peak shots is hard to do. All the snow messes with the white balance in the camera. If you have bright days be sure to have a good polarizer for each lens also. Oh yeah, tripod, don't forget to have a pod and you should get either a remote shutter or a cable, I use both and both are handy.
