make sure your battery is in good working order. cold and elevation can make for hard starts.

I was up in Flag last winter messing around trying to find open parking lots to slide around in.... the best I found was a lot south of NAU on the east side of the highway. I thought for sure the campus security would come hassle me but they drove right by. I probably spent over an hour there practicing my drift!

You want the car to warm up for awhile before you start driving around with that thick of oil. If you can I would change it before you go.

I was running 10w40 and the car was not happy with me when I first started it.
