That is possible Mg. Could also be Spruce Aphid. These are very small (much smaller than aphids on roses etc) and cause significant damage to Spruce even during the dormant season.

If the tips look fine but the previous seasons stems section growth is browning it could be these.

Could you post a photo in a new question?

Won't be the cold as Picea pungens is extremely hardy.

Wait and see what happens as spring gets under way and keep us posted.
