The Wind Chill are the professional Ultimate team based out of Minnesota. The Wind Chill are heading into their seventh season in the American Ultimate Disc League (AUDL), coming off a 8-6 regular season record in 2018.

The new ownership group also includes Ben Feldman, who both played and served as General Manager of the Wind Chill in 2017 and 2018, as well as Jim Mott, MVP of Surly Brewing Company.

The team competes in a 12-game regular season and will hosted the majority of their 2018 home games at Sea Foam Stadium in Saint Paul, which is being renovated with state of the art turf this upcoming May. See directions here.
