Written Report:
Toured up Tumalo from Vista, came up the ridge line around 2:00pm pst and saw the released wind slab. Looks like it was human triggered, as a track led into and out of the slide path. Significant wind transport was observed throughout the climb.

Temp at the summit at 2:00pm pst was around 25F. Winds were moderate from the SSQ. Lots of wind affected snow, from 6" to pockets of 14".
