I doubt you need it but those handwarmers put by extra batteries helps out a lot. Depending where you go sledding what out for tubers. Getting hit by one of those isnt good without a camera, other people will go faster and farther than you daughter.

I plan to go The North Pole Tubing Park: http://www.mthigh.com/mountain/north-pole-tubing-park

I never done it before. However, the in-laws said they have 12 different lanes and only allow one tube to slide at the time; Anais Mountain High Snow Tubing 3

Thanks,
Dylan

Just spent a good portion of the day in Tahoe with my 5dIII and 24-70 MKI and no issues. The advice given about keeping the camera cold is spot on. Wish I had more edit time before I saw this! Took a few panno's of fog (I think what they call pogonip) hovering over the mountains. I even had this little snow monster with me all day:

That may be just fine, if you can get physically close.

How about a 70-200, or 24-105 to give you better reach?

You may also want to experiment with a flash, and grey card.

Have fun.

With shutter speed 1/800 to 1/1000, I don't think "IS" going to help with photograph.

While I don't have the 24-70 MkII, my 7D survived without problems while lying in the snow when attached to my 300 f/2.8. Ole Liodden also did an article testing out a 7D getting splashed with snow. The 5D MkIII has the same level of weatherproofing as the 7D, so I wouldn't expect any problems, but I haven't been in that situation with mine as we don't tend to get a lot of snow here.

I saw a youtube video a while back where they put the 7D through a durability test.  All i remember is that they froze it in a solid block of ice and then lit it on fire and IT STILL TURNED ON.  Those things hold up pretty well I'd say.

IS isn't going to help photographs at those speeds but IS really does help for video handheld...

... not to prevent camera shake, but IS also produces a steady viewfinder and this is also nice for picture composition and setting the af point exactly where it should be - probably won't matter much in the "standard" zoom range, but starting @~160mm+ it's nice to have.

Nice shot crasher8, it so sharp and clear. AI servo or Single?

I had my camera set AI servo, the pictures weren't sharp as your :-[

Ok so it's not a 24-70 I don't have one and don't have the 70-200 any longer either!
