Written Report:
I toured to the summit of Tumalo from Dutchman parking lot. The snow surface was mostly a variety of crusts.

On the summit (7775ft, 12:30) the air temperature was 1C (34F). The clouds were scattered and the wind was light out of the NW.

No avalanche problems were present and I observed no signs of unstable snow.

Dropping into the east facing bowl, I found firm, crusty conditions. The southerly aspects were beginning to soften up and skied well.
