Saukkovaara in Kainuu – the deepest snow in Finland

Kainuu in Central Eastern part of Finland has usually the deepest snow, and Saukkovaara where our family cottage is located has the deepest snow in Kainuu.  For now there is more than one meter deep snow layer.  I enjoyed skiing holiday with my family including granddaughters  Venla, Sanni and Hertta.

The spruces look like candles, tall and thin.  The branches do not hold much of snow, so  they do not break easily.
