The ski hill and snowboard park at Calgary's Canada Olympic Park will remain closed through Wednesday.

Officials closed the hill on Tuesday as a safety precaution because of the extreme cold.

CBC Calgary weather specialist Craig Larkins says it was a record-breaking start to the day at Canada Olympic Park on Tuesday morning, with the temperature at -24 C — breaking the record of -20 C in 2008.

"COP, along with the rest of Alberta, has been dealing with wind chill values in the -30s today. We can expect these bitterly cold temperatures to stick around on Wednesday," he said.

With the wind chill, the temperature felt like -33 C on Tuesday.
