The Pear Lake Ski Hut was built in Sequoia National Park by the Civilian Conservation Corps during 1939-1941. It is an example of the National Park Service Rustic style, using rough masonry and a log roof structure.[2]

It is located in the park, east of Lodgepole. It has been said to be "one of the most environmentally successful alpine structures ever designed by the NPS".[3]
