I hiked up Baldy via the Ski Hut today (Friday, March 23).  There is a fair amount of snow left from last weekend's storm.  The snow on the trail starts about 1000' below the Hut.  Above the Hut, there is plenty of snow.  It was pretty soft, which is no surprise given the mild temperatures lately.  It won't be there for long unless the next storm, due on Sunday, pans out.  

Here are some pictures.

The temps have been warm again so the snow is melting fast.

We did Manker Canyon from the ski lift road to the where it intersects Devil's Backbone, then made our way under Harwood, thru the saddle and up to the top of Baldy. The south end of the bowl has snow in it and that is not too bad, the main bowl is melting fast. After 9 or 10 in the morning it's pure slush on the trail going up to the ski hut, so go early, go to the south end and enjoy.

I just got back from another engagement or I would have posted this earlier, sorry. I'll put up pictures tomorrow, I have some work to do to make up for being gone today.

There's about 12 -16 inches on the South end of the bowl and in piles/drifts here and there but like I said above it's going fast.

Good stuff up Bear Canyon yesterday.

Add up to 20" from today and this week might be the time to climb Baldy from the village between now and December or so....

This might be a day or two late, i'm sure conditions have changed drastically - but a quick report from Saturday am.

Left car about 630am - couple guys out on the trail - briefly spoke with a fellow that has spent the night on the summit, he was nice enough to give me the scoop on conditions. I hustled by the hut and put on crampons at the base of the main chute - following a climber already working his way up. I believe we exited the Zeke chute, but not sure - it was pretty wide and had a bit of exposed rock, but nothing too hectic.

After heading to the summit with the other climber (Joe), we headed down different routes around 930am - he descended the chute, and i walked over to the westside. There were a lot of people heading up, as always some were on point (Hello Frank), others ill-equipped but determined.

Well, I'm looking for some info for the bowl, specifically any slides, depth, anyone made any turns etc.  Probably the best thing for me to do is to just go up and spend the night and assess for myself!  I plan on heading out this Sat, Mar 31 and spending the night.  But...if anyone has any info from the past 48 hrs, that would be helpful.  If not, then I will post what I see when I return.  NOAA site forecasts high winds out of the west.

Looking to leave Manker and hit the summit on Monday.  

How is the trail going up?  I was hoping to just do it with trail runners, but can be talked into waiting a little longer for more snow to melt.

Thanks for any help!

Did anyone hike Baldy Hut trail this weekend?  Is the trail passable to the summit?  Or is it still covered in snow?

Yes, yes, and yes.

Actually, the snow part is only partly true.  There was plenty of snow in a few places but you could walk right through any of it.

It may snow tonight. Even if it does snow tonight it will probably melt by tomorrow afternoon.


These photos were from last Saturday.

If you hike up ski hut trail there is snow on the ridge just past the bowl, it was easily walkable:

A view of the Bear Canyon Trail before it reaches West Baldy:

And the bowl has almost no snow at all:

4/30 Went late (8:30 am). Light clouds, but mostly sunny with some wind. No snow on the trail. Some patches around and beside the trail. Summit pleasant and breezy.

The Baldy Bowl has 100% coverage at the south end, 75% at the north. Conditions were icy at the south end, fairly well consolidated at the north. Near the summit, in the morning, it was effortless to walk around in crampons, almost no postholing. Unfortunately we have a week of sun and high temperatures forecast, so this weekend may be the last big chance to have fun with ice ax and crampons in the Baldy area.

I didn't look carefully at 3 T's. The ski resort is claiming a foot of snow at the notch, but I'm skeptical. I didn't need chains to get to Manker.

Anybody go up Baldy recently?  Looking to practice some ice axe & crampon skills this upcoming weekend and am wondering if there's enough snow to make a trip worthwhile.

There should be. REI ran a snow travel class there this past saturday. They said there's plenty of snow and still expect conditions to be good for this Saturday's class (although it's full).

Howdy cr2crf  Smile

I went down the ski hut trail last Friday after going up Register Ridge to Baldy. There was some ice where the trail winds up through the little forest after crossing the bottom of the bowl. I used microspikes for that section -- didn't need them anywhere else.

Miles of smiles,

Did it today in trail runners. Up Ski Hut, down Backbone. There's a bit of snow and ice here and there, climbing out of the bowl and just below the summit. But nothing problematic. It was friggin windy though. I wore pants, two shirts, light gloves, beanie, and handkerchief over face.

Hey all, planning on taking my wife and little sister up baldy for their first time this weekend and was curious about the current conditions.  Planning to go up via the ski hut.  Last time i did that trail (little over a month ago) there was show from the ski hut on.  Up was fine, but down was a nightmare and wouldnt want to take my little sister down that.  from my house (brea) it looks like baldy is "snowless" now, can anyone confirm?

Thanks in advance!

Last weekend there were small patches of snow in the bowl. Nothing to worry about though. It's probably all gone by now.

New to the area and looking into checking out Baldy this weekend. Looked like it got quite a bit of snow last weekend, but it's been getting progressively warmer since then.

Has any one been up (or going up today or tomorrow) and can speak to the conditions? Just trying to get an idea of what kind of gear I'm going to need.

I'm planning on taking the backbone straight to the summit.

Thanks!

I went up Mt. Baldy today from Bear Canyon with my friend Tom. Tom was in fine form but I managed to forget to eat before heading out and paid for it all the way up. The wind was out in places, mostly anywhere exposed on the South-East. I didn't mind it much and found it energizing. Tom who wore shorts said if he stopped he froze. There was snow on the trail in patches but with care we ascended without need for additional traction.  Tom wore microspikes with his trail runners for the initial descent. I put on crampons for a 100' or so for the traverse that drops to the north-west side of the ridge near West Baldy (9440'). This section was too slick and slow to do without something on the way down (I expect it will stay so for the season), plus it was a winter trip right? Niether of us felt the need for an ice axe. Total round trip 7:30.

Things are mixed.  There will be snow on north slopes, less elsewhere.  There's a lot of patchy stuff out there.  Not a lot of deep drifts, but there is snow.

The real danger now is ice.  Get yourself killed on that stuff.  Microspikes are a really good idea.

I climbed it this morning via the Ski Hut trail.  There was a small stretch of snow/ice on the north slope just above the ski hut, but otherwise everything is really dry.  Only used microspikes descending (to go faster).

Climbed Baden-Powell Saturday.  Huge difference- postholing and powder for 6 hours...

We went up the Ski Hut and down the Backbone on Monday, December 23.  NOMAN668 described the Ski Hut Trail well.  There are more patches of snow on the backbone but it was easily passable at 11 AM.  A couple of spots could get interesting after a cold night (hard freeze)

I went up the backbone trail today.  The weather felt like september.  There was a few patches of dirty snow but nothing that could not be walked around.  The wind was about 5 mph and not a cloud in the sky.  Great day for a hike.

I went up on the Baldy Flat trail on Friday.  It was mostly clear.  From the Hardscrabble Narrows to the summit there were patches of snow and ice.  Most of it you could go around and the few you could not required some careful steps, but not many.  Conditions are good, but no winter in sight.  Is Winter Coming?

Much less snow and ice now.  No traction devices required.  Still, the wind off the ice can be cold.  I wore my down jacket for the descent.

Looks like Fall. Or Spring. Anything but Winter.
But since it's so nice out I'm going to hit the bowl trail and come down via backbone this weekend, my last hike for a couple months.
D-Day for the knee is Thursday.

Hiked to the summit on the Bear Canyon Trail yesterday.  Most of the snow is gone.  The only crossing of snow is on the traverse to West Baldy before the barren traverse and there is no exposure where the snow is; just boot prints to step in.  The weather was great, a little windy in spots but that is expected on Baldy.

Made another trip up to the top today.  But…I got to use my crampons!  I put them on just below the hard scrabble narrows.  not a lot of snow but icy.  Closer to the top a dusting of snow over ice.  If it were not for the steep sections, crampons would not have been needed.  On the way down there was a good bit of melting, but that should be fixed with a cold night and another storm tomorrow night.   I had the whole mountain to myself.  Great day!

Been meaning to suggest maybe we make this post a sticky? No point to really ever write a trip report up any of the standard routes, but conditions are always good to know.

Baldy obviously got hammered late last week. The snow should stick around a bit, but it may ice over soon. We were able to make it all the way up and down on Sunday with nothing more than micros and poles, soft new snow, probably a lot more slippery now. Hopefully another system moves in soon on top of this one, but it's pretty late in the season... Hope you enjoyed winter!
