Today it is colder here in Fernie then on the North Pole. This morning at 7 am the thermometer dipped to its lowest temp right before sunrise. It is -30°C at my house. It is too cold and too dangerous to do anything. The ski resort has issued a warning about skiing and the risk of frostbite on your face when you ski down. I doubt that this cold makes Canadian tough, because all you can do is to stay inside. Not for me, I am getting dressed and pull my tires in my polar outfit and test my gear in full arctic conditions.
