Either would make sense, or if you really want an open sight .35 Whelan Remington actually made the 700 BDL in that caliber. That said I don't see any particular reason to go for a .35 Whelan over say a 7mm Mag, which will give you more range for those longer shots in the mountains. Not that a .30-06 won't do the job, but in Alberta (closest terrain to Colorado in Canada) the 7mm and .300 Win are the most popular.

Also, cold weather shooting tip from a Manitoban - wood is warmer on your hands in the cold than plastic and less likely to crack (although I think the problems with frozen plastic cracking are a little exaggerated).
