Pear Lake, Sequoia National Park, March 2002


Beautiful clear skies and great ski conditions were on tap for our trip to the Pear Lake Hut.  After some interesting adventures getting in to the hut, we spent a couple of days exploring this magnificent area. 


Pear Lake is located on the western edge of the High Sierra in Sequoia National Park.  The surrounding area is a backcountry skier's promised land, offering endless opportunities for day tours and ski descents.  As if this weren't good enough, the Sequoia Natural History Association maintains a hut just below Pear Lake that shelters up to ten lucky souls.  The hut is a perfect base from which to explore the surrounding backcountry.

Reservations are required for the hut.  Most weekends book up at the beginning of the winter season, so act early if you want to take advantage of the relative luxuries of the hut.  Camping near the hut or up at Pear Lake is a bit colder, but still well worth it if you can't get into the hut.  Contact the SNHA for reservation information.
