More detailed information about the weather: 

Strong NE ridgetop winds stripping snow from the northerly aspects resulting in visible snow transport over the Sherwin ridgeline and Bloody Mtn.  It doesn't appear that there is too much loose snow left for transport, but obviously there still is some!  While it appears that most of the snow is sublimating into the atmosphere, some of the snow is likely settling into wind slabs on the southerly aspects just below the ridgelines.
