Written Report:
I toured up Tumalo this afternoon between 12:30 and 3:30pm. Conditions were cold (below freezing) with steady light snowfall. It was a bit foggy near the top, where it's more open. I did not ski the bowl due to flat light and poor visibility, though I did see others doing laps in the main bowl on the far skiers' left. I looked for signs of a wind slab problem or other indications of wind transported snow (scouring, drifts). There were some shallow (~5cm), soft slabs but no significant indication of wind affected snow or blowing snow.

Skiing was nice through the trees.
