Let me see, Lapland, December. Yes, I think it may well be just a little on the chilly side. Thermal suits are likely to be a good deal more useful than beachwear. I can't comment on how suitable your thermal gear will be for skiing. Perhaps you should ask the people you've hired them from.

if you are skiing then you will need to ensure that you have the usual layers underneath your thermal suit and that you have something covering your ears and face - look at www.lapland.fruitbandit.com for more info

as for the temps - it could be +2 to -27 so there is no saying and having been several times it really can vary loads each day but just to say, when it's -10 etc its not the same as it is here, its a dry cold so does not actually feel as cold as it sounds its going to be - the wind is more of the issue when you are skiing

have fun
