San Bernardino County reported harsh weather conditions two weeks ago on Twitter and alerted a week ago to the danger of hiking on Mount Baldy in this period due to high winds and ice. Born in Yorkshire, Northern England, Julian Sands calls California home and is a mountain enthusiast.

In particular, he climbed the Andes in the early 1990s and got stuck in a storm at more than 6,000 meters above sea level. In 2020, he told the British daily The Guardian to find happiness “near a mountain peak on a beautiful cold morning“.
