There were moderate-strong W-WSW winds at Willamette Pass, visibly blowing lots of snow on Saturday (1/7). Diamond Peak had a large cloud of blowing snow off the summit (see attached).
Between Eagle Peak and West Peak, there was evidence of windblown snow and a little cracking on the NE slopes off the ridge in the open trees. Otherwise, no evidence of instabilities. The SW aspect still had some nice skiing in the tree-sheltered areas.
