I've been wanting to do Pearl Pass since I live so close but the snow this winter was heavier than recent years. I might make a run at it before you get there and I may try to join you for a leg of the trip. I'll give you an update if I can. As of a month ago, at a lower elevation, Aspen Mountain Road and Richmond Hill were still impassible.
