Question about cold weather and composite sticks

Hey all, I've used wooden sticks since I started playing, one wooden stick actually, and I've both outgrown it length wise and have a case of puck pocket and am heavily considering making the switch to composite. My main worry is that being so cold in South Dakota during the winters and i only have access to ODR (no stick and puck sessions at the local arena even) that the extreme cold and wind chills will make it extremely brittle. Don't reallt wanna go through a ton of sticks either. All thoughts and feedback greatly appreciated

cold weather should have no drastic effect on a composite stick

They use composite in space so I think your stick will be fine.
