I've found that spraying a bit of WD40 into the lock cylinder and then
working the lock a bit with your key (and then cleaning the junk off the
key) does the trick. I don't live in NH, where it is a bit colder than
it tis in Oregon. But I go skiing several times a year. Since I've been
doing this WD40 trick I've not had a problem with frozen locks.
