Looking for a trip suggestion for my son and I for the above mentioned time frame. I know the Sierra fairly well, but as a teacher, I'm never on vacation during this time period so I don't know the feasibility of a trip with my son right now. Not familiar with snow conditions/road closures this time of year. Normally I'd just get a map and go, but again, conditions are vague to me right now.
Can anyone suggest anything open right now that could make for a decent 5-10 mile/day 3 night trip? Areas to look at?
(I'm thinking something along the lines of Thursday night at the trailhead, Fri/Sat on the trail, back at car Sunday. Some snow is fine, just not looking to do a full winter gear (snowshoes, etc.) trip with him right now if snowpack is still heavy.
