Thanks for all of the replies! I guess my primary concern should be the battery. I'll have a spare with me...both batteries will be in my pockets.
The coldest I've done at an airport was MSP
about 6 years ago. It was -17F outside. I had a Canon 630 film camera at the time...what weird noises it made! I was only out there for an hour before it was just too damn cold. Now, I'd gladly spend a day in the bitter cold at MSP
for a chance to shoot Omni Air/NW DC-10's, KLM 742's, ATA L10's, TWA, Vanguard, and Sun Country DC-10/727's all day long..

Let me guess, you're climbing the hill west of EGE?
That's one spot I plan to check out as soon as business travel and weather stop interfering with my weekends. What I have in mind though is the hills near the Aspen airport. I was up there during the summer and the overlooking view was really good! Unfortunately, roads are not available to the spot I'm wanting to shoot from.
