Location: Tumalo
Riding Conditions: OK, Terrible
Snow Conditions: Wind effected, Firm, Crusty
Terrain Ridden: Mellow slopes
The Day Was: Sunny, Cloudy

Additional Comments:
Dawn Patrol on Tumalo. The snow was all around crusty and pretty terrible, but the company was great.

The bowl had a huge overhanging cornice and the snow conditions were windblown, hardpack. We skied the west aspect back to Dutchman where there was a 3.5 - 4 cm crust that made turning less than ideal.

Caption: The giant overhanging cornice. There's a decent amount of debris below.
