If you are planning to head to Pear Lake Ski Hut in the Winter make sure you go low around Aster lake and don’t follow the trail on this map that goes between Aster Lake and Emerald Lake. PLEASE NOTE: During winter conditions the route on this map is the summer route and takes you into very steep avalanche prone area. It’s a little confusing because there are Yellow Trail Blazes that mark the trail for both summer and winter routes. Don’t rely on the blazes as your only means of navigation. Go low around Aster Lake!!! Here’s a link to a map for this section: http://imgur.com/a/FbEzq
