I found some data for December 2010, the maximum snow depth was 65 cm, I just found a news report and might just go about using that as it said it was published by FMI.
And the site ogimet.com, does it have every month from 2002?

Fronts moving from the SW or S may produce lake-effect snow, and it seems to have become more frequent the last winters.

I've mentioned it a few times before here but in February 2008 the snow depth in my backyard (non-shovelled) was about 150 cm or roughly five feet. And I am not a in mountain location.

The town Gävle (Sweden) experienced something something like that in 1998 and it was in December funnily enough
Here is the video-

Ya, the best thing to do is go to this page, type in the city you're looking for, click "go" (the day you choose is immaterial), and then click "download data." If you filter with a spreadsheet you can find in under 10 seconds the all time maximum for that location.

this isn't all that surprising, considering the mean temperature difference in winter between stockholm and helsinki is around 3C. many people in sweden assume that helsinki has about the same winters as stockholm, when in fact helsinki is colder than gävle (southern norrland) in winter.

I wouldn't say its much colder than Gävle. I would say it is slightly colder than Gävle, but slightly warmer than Borlange/Falun. However snow is more reliable in Gävle.
