OK, we live in South Georgia where we wear short sleeves virtually 12 months a year. We are coming to Stow in January and want to enjoy the outdoors and the snow, including snowshoeing and cross country skiing on trails and maybe the donald duck beginners slopes. For a day on the snow in what I am guessing will be colder than we have ever experienced (except years ago in the USAF in South Dakota) what kind of boots and coats should we buy to wear? Also someone on TA a couple of weeks ago said there was not enough snow to snowshoe. I am guessing the mid January there will be enough snow? Thanking you in advance for your advice.
