On Tuesday, March 21, 2017 at approximately 3:30 pm, California State Parks received a report of a female hiker that was stranded on the Skyline Route. The reporting person said they left together around 5 am from Palm Springs to hike up the Skyline Route. The 2 hikers separated as the other hiker was having difficulties hiking in the snow and ice. The reporting hiker said that they hiked this route last year in March and that there wasn’t any snow. California Highway Patrol Aviation Unit H-60 Helicopter was activated. The female was difficult to locate as she kept moving. CHP H-60 located the female hiker stranded around the 8170 foot level. The female hiker was about ½ mile off the intended route coming up a snow/ice chute towards Notch 2 on the Desert View Trail. The female hiker was successfully hoisted up and flown over to an empty parking lot at the tram.
