    Since you cannot express the future in the verb - as the future tense does not exist in Finnish - you should just use the present tense form, with an indication (tänä: this winter and not viimenä: last winter) that makes clear the action will take place in the future.

    not 100% sure, but that's what I'd say :-)
    let's wait for a Fin to answer this one!
