LAWRENCEBURG, Ind. -- Ski slopes like Perfect North rely on cold weather to stay in business. In fact, Perfect North's 2016-17 winter season ended early due to unseasonably warm weather and lots of rain.

But what happens when it's too cold outside for skiing?

This week, the Tri-State reached temperatures in the single digits -- and below zero with the wind chill -- and health officials have warned about the dangers of hypothermia and frost bite.
