I grew up in Wenatchee, learned to ski at Mission Ridge...

I wouldn't worry; the fuel you get in BC either comes from the Husky refinery in Burnaby, or the Chevron in Prince George - both probably have the same anti-gell ingredients. And they're probably the same you get in Wenatchee (which might get diesel from Spokane/Billings - not sure.) Battery is going to be the gating factor - make sure it's in good shape. You'll probably notice a pause after you hit the start button while the glow plugs heat up.
