Topic - First timer in proper snow...

Mike505 on 28 Jan 2014
Hi Folks,
I got a really good deal on a flight to and accommodation in Saariselka (just south of Ivalo, Finland). Generally I'm into scrambling and edging into climbing, so I have a goodish selection of gear that I've gathered over the years. I'm trying to figure out what I'll need to get for a week on in the snow in addition to my current kit.

At the minute my cold weather gear comprises of; Meindl Vakuum boots, Berghaus Attrition II Jacket, RAB Baseline hoodie, merino wool baselayer, various hiking trousers and a pair of (massively discounted) Arc'teryx Beta AR pants.

Could anyone suggest some, winter trousers and mid layers please? Would the RAB Continuum Jacket be over kill as a mid?
I've been told it will be -15*C but could drop much lower?
Thanks for any help offered.
