Pear Lake Winter Hut - Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks CA
The Pear Lake Winter Hut was originally built by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) in 1939-41 as a ranger station for Sequoia National Park. It now serves as a ranger station in the summer and as a ski hut for backcountry skiers in winter.
The hut is 17′ x 30′ and constructed of stone in the national park rustic style. The steeply pitched gable roof is supported by a framework of log rafters and brackets, with a shake roof. A gable covers the second-story balcony and a rear gable is covered with board and batten. It sleeps ten people.
The Peak Lake Winter Hut/Ranger Station was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.
Pear Lake is found at 9,200 feet in the High Sierra.
