Off the bat, what will probably help if it's not already equipped...a good quality battery with a lot of cold cranking amps...an engine block heater...you'll also want to make sure the fluids you're running are designed for use in that temperature range.
As far as being in the higher altitudes...I'm not sure. Not a vehicle expert...but I think the computers are designed to adjust the air/fuel ratio regardless of altitude (unlike older vehicles where you had to manually adjust the carbs). You may need to reset the computer...or it'll eventually adjust on its own. I'm sure some of the owners with personal experience will also chime in with some better advice.
