“Unfortunately, in the past four weeks, two hikers have not survived after falling and sustaining injuries,” they said.

“Please know that the current conditions on Mount Baldy are unfavorable and extremely dangerous.

“Due to the strong winds, the snow has turned to ice, which makes hiking extremely dangerous.”

The dangerous conditions mean that search and rescue efforts have been “hindered by bad weather” and the likelihood of “dangerous avalanche conditions”.

“Recent storms that brought snow and ice conditions are not favorable for hikers, even those who feel they have a high level of experience,” authorities said.

The sheriff’s department has urged visitors to follow simple tips to stay safe.

These include: following all posted warning signs, reviewing the weather conditions (current and forecast) for the area, ensuring you have the correct equipment, training and being properly prepared for alpine conditions (crampons , ice axe, appropriate clothing), take a hiking partner, take a tracking or GPS device such as a SPOT device or INREACH device, ensure all cell phones are fully charged and bring an extra power pack loaded for this one.

They also told visitors to let someone know where and when they are going, what time they will be back, and “above all” not to go if there is any hesitation on the ground.
