This is gonna be tricky business- I can see why your asking for support but I can't help you much at the moment. The viewfinder is the deal breaker for you on many recommendations I would make.
Of course, my 1977 Nikon FE with a fast fixed lens and slide film meets those requirements...
Good luck, I'll share any ideas if they come.

If you sleep with the camera, it will work for some time (a few hours, depending on the temperatures). ...
Batteries must be kept warm. That requires changing batteries every half an hour or so in really cold temperatures (High Sierra in winter, for ex.). I have spare lithium batteries (5 of them) but I don't appreciate changing batteries in mid pitch on a climb...There are a few cameras on the market that are sealed offering weather resistance to 14 degrees F....
The Cannon Powershot line is OK. The G-12 and G-15 are good cameras. but their minimum operating temp is 32 degrees F.
So if there is nothing available on the market, fair enough, we will have to live with the old cameras we have.
