Well December came in like a lion but left like a lamb. For the last day of 2008 we went up to les Areches in the Beaufortain to ski the Roche Plane
A nice route which winds up through woods and mountian hamlets before the final summit pyramid. Slopes on the summit were icy with lots of old tracks but the snow in the forest was soft, if worn in places. We then were treated to some very humid snow and skied most of the way back to les Areches. Conditions seemed stable.
