yep, It gets cold If you running a diesel you will need to use an additive in the fuel and depending how cold it is a dipstick heater wouldn't hurt. If you use gas your ok there should not have a problem. THE OIL if you use a 10/30 use a 5/30 look in the car manual to see what oil to be used in cold weather. And always let some one know when and where you are traveling to just incase of trouble on the road. Make sure you have a phone that has international calling and you had service. We had done snowmobiling up that way and it does get very cold when the sun goes down. Safe trip to yea.
