It was around 0° at the top, 25-30 mph winds. Long hike.

Did you climb or did you drive? Colorado tends to get its most significant snow in like February/March/April time frame.

I'm impressed, my 20+ miles per day hiking days are long gone, particularly with over 7000 feet of elevation gain and carrying all that gear. Battery life for the Mavic was no doubt pretty low given the thin air and low temps.

Battery life is better than expected at 14k, I’ve climbed 11 fourteeners this winter, have flown from nearly all of them (it was too windy just once). Seems like maybe a 20% reduction in flight time. I wrap the batteries in hand warmers before starting hike.
