Baldy Mountain, east of Oliver, will remain closed today as authorities investigate a fatal accident.

'It is with great pain we report the passing of a wonderful, caring, gentle and valued Baldy Family member, from a terrible accident yesterday," resort staff said in a statement posted to its website.

"We are all devastated. The intense emotions we feel are beyond comprehension. We cannot begin to grasp the overwhelming pain and sorrow the family is going through right now. We know there are no words to comfort them. Everyone at Baldy is working diligently with the authorities on this situation, following their directions and complying with their requests. We will be closed today as they pursue their investigation. Further scheduling updates will be provided on our website and social media."

No further information was made available.

They ask for patience and understanding while they deal with the situation.
