Welcome to the Apple Discussions!
If you visit the MacBook Pro Technical Specifications page, you'll find this info:
Electrical and environmental requirements
Meets ENERGY STAR requirements
Line voltage: 100V to 240V AC
Frequency: 50Hz to 60Hz
DC input: 18.5 Vdc, 4.6A maximum
Operating temperature: 50° to 95° F (10° to 35° C)
Storage temperature: -13° to 113° F (-24° to 45° C)
Relative humidity: 0% to 90% noncondensing

Personally, I'd bring it inside just to be safe.
P.S. This is the "MacBook" forum. In the future, you may want to post your questions in one of the MacBook Pro forums.
Straight from the specs page on Apple's site:

You should be fine so far as storage goes... but you'll want to let it warm up a bit when you bring it in before you use it. I would agree with Doug however... unless you don't feel comfortable with the security of the lockers. Notebooks are fairly delicate devices and exposing them to extremes in temperatures is probably not a great idea. So long as you don't do it that often, you'll probably be fine. Humidity is another issue. Generally... when it's cold out, inside humidity is fairly low. However... as you mentioned you will be in the mountains... there are lots of places where you can go into the mountains to ski during the day... and come back to moderate temps in the afternoon. In those cases, the warmer location may be more humid. In that case, your notebook can act the same way a glass of ice water does and get condensation build up.
