Unless you have aid climbing and/or ice climbing experience it is likely that your previous climbing experience is not very relevant. Being able to lead a 5.11 crack or clip bolts on a sport route is unimportant - the important skills are being able to self-arrest (on hard snow, or possibly on ice), do a free-hanging prusik, build a Z+C hauling system on sloping ice, and run a Kiwi coil with an alpine butterfly
