More detailed information about the weather: 

Observing steady, moderate to strong W-NW winds transporting visibly big amounts of snow over all the high ridges and down into the gullies from Gilcrest Moutain on south to Lee Vining Peak. The wind is transporting snow at all elevations ATL, NTL, BTL and moving it from high ridges down far into drainages and to mid- slope elevations. I also see snow transport in what I would normally consider sheltered trees.
