    As Sir Earnest Shackleton would say, that's 69 degrees of frost. (How many degrees F below 32°).

    Exactly!  So close it didn't matter!  

    Even when it "warmed up" that afternoon, people who weren't wearing ski masks were getting frostbitten cheeks.  Even though Mother Nature was not providing much wind, skiers were creating their own.  It was not fun, even dangerous.

    One morning it was reported as -37.  I didn't bother asking.
    That's approaching the "magic number" in terms of °C and °F. At -40, there's no need to do any conversion. -40°C = -40°F. Either way, that's %$&# cold! :D
