We've just booked 7 days in Kuusamo staying in the Sokos Hotel and as we've never been on a winter/snowy holiday before we have no idea what to buy to wear, take with us.
Can anyone provide advice? Do we need ski jackets, salopettes, snow boots, etc even if we're not going to ski? We do plan to do lots of other activities like husky sledding, snowmobiling and sledging and hopefully more.
And, as we're staying Kuusamo town will it be snowy in the town or is just snowy on the slopes? Sorry if I see a bit dim, but I much prefer sunny holidays, we're trying something different and new this year!
And, can you just go up the ski lifts and eat at the restaurants without actually skiing? And if you do, how do you get back down the slopes?
Thank you anybody who takes the time to reply to what may seem like stupid questions to anyone who has done a winter holiday before!!!
