I plan to work with my dSLR in a snowing enviroment -5 to 10 degrees celcius. Will my camera be able to function in this harsh weather without any component (lens, memory card etc) taking damage?

I would expect DSLRs to work just as well as film SLRs. The most annoying thing you might encounter is fogging of the lenses when going from the cold outdoors into a warm building. The fogging will clear after fifteen minutes or so.

Digital SLRs function even better in the cold in that the CCD will have less noise. Heat among other things creates noise in CCDs.
