Written Report:
I toured up Tumalo today. The riding was really good, fast, supportable powder. There was 20-25 cm of new, fist hard, snow on top of a light crust and the snow was right side up down to the 1-12 rain crust.

It was lightly snowing rimed plates and dendrites, needles, and stellars off and on all day. Winds were calm/light in the trees and moderate near treeline with some strong gusts. Temps were in the upper 20's and dropping as I was leaving around 2pm. Ski pen in most places was 5-10cm and boot pen was 0.5 meter.

I didn't see any sign of instability or avalanche activity on my tour.
