Winter Damage Peach Trees

I have two peach trees that fruited in the past, Reliance and Contender. I had a huge crop last year.

Winter here was brutal with multiple days at -30F (at least two nights). This year I had no flowers. I have very few leaflets, and now some of those are withering.

Contender which is younger is better than Reliance which was overgrown and pruned back at the start of winter.

So, now -- I have a handful of leaves, do I wait some more, or chop them down and start over? Or is there something that can be done to stimulate the trees' growth?
