ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – Minnesota venues that cater to cold-weather enthusiasts have decided it is way too cold to stay open.

With temperatures plunging far below zero and wind chills making it seem even colder, some ski and sledding hills and ice rinks have been declared closed from this weekend until Tuesday.

Giants Ridge in Biwabik is shutting down its ski operations Sunday and Monday due to the frigid conditions.

Minneapolis park officials say they won’t be operating the popular tubing hill in Wirth park. All ice rink warming houses are also being closed until Tuesday.

St. Paul was closing its ice rinks and its Como Park ski hill.
