I "store" mine for the winter, but it is in my garage where I can look after it. If I were in a really cold climate - like yours - and were storing off-site, I would remove the battery and store it at home with a tender on it.

I put mine in a 10X20 this past winter. Not heated is fine. As some places don't have power outlets for a battery tender, you may want to just disconnect the battery. You could pull it, and put a tender on it at home if needed. Just use the manual key procedure to get back in the car when ready to connect the battery back up.
A few more things to consider........
- Warm up engine & oil thoroughly after your oil change ... before storing.
- Scatter a few moth ***** around on the floor to help keep mice away.
- Put plastic bags on the exhaust tips to keep critters from crawling in.
- Pull up the corner of your cover monthly and LOOK......to get your blood pumping again.
- Don't start it until you are ready to get it out in the spring.
- Check over very closely for any critter nests in the engine compartment, etc.
- Check for and note any liquid drips on the floor for later investigation.
- Don't forget to remove plastic bags and pick up the moth ***** so your don't crush them and make a mess.
-Put a small rag under each wiper to relieve the pressure on the blades.
-Pump the clutch pedal and brake pedal each 10 times, once a month.
-Push the car forward (or back) a quarter rotation of the tires once a month to prevent flat spots.
