Written Report:
Toured on Tumalo today and skied the bowl. Dug a pit at the top to look for the buried surface hoar. Was able to find it at 50 cm buried under wind deposited snow and it was mostly deteriorated/rounding. Compression test resulted in CTE at 10 cm on a density change in the storm snow, and a CTM on the surface hoar layer. ECT resulted in ECTX. Wind was strong from the NNW.
Sky: Broken skies Precip: S2 Moderate snow
