    Anyone know if Canaan Mountain via Water Canyon, up to the white domes or so, would be a reasonable hike this weekend, or is it too snowy up there? I have a 10yo and 12yo; they're pretty nimble but aren't going to do deep snow or slippery/steep rocks. Thanks!

    Even though I haven't been in that area, water canyon is probably chock full of snow and there are some areas within it that are already decently exposed and any snow/ice in there could be treacherous. Im not sure how conditions have changed since @ram's visit (see his TR if not already) but I cant imagine them being much different since the approach is all on the canyon walls

    Yeah... may be better to give this one a miss until spring.
