Hi Jeff,
I'm keeping conspis for many years.
I hibernate my adults for 5 months at temperatures between 5-10 C (41-50F).
I would not put them warmer. They feed only for some months every year and so it is necessary to keep them weight and hibernate them similar to the conditions of the origin. If You have them warm they loose more weight.
Last winter was very cold here and a many snakes from my collection got for two days temperatures of 1C (34F).
... no problem for them. I did breed them again.

Babies I hibernate at the same temperatures but shorter, because most of them don't feed before first hibernation.

Good luck with them and don't be afraid. In my eyes higher temeratures are the higher risk.
