Head south to thaw it out.

or...get up there with your favorite WD-40, soak it, and use a large pipe wrench on it, you may break it as aluminum on a steel thread locks up over time.
Heat may help also... as in propane torch.
Your opinion is valued, please not your opinion of someones else's opinion.
