Crazy to go to Grand Canyon in Dec?

We're planning a huge family reunion. We will meet at Las Vegas, spend a couple of days there before we head over to Grand Canyon around Dec 20-23. Has anybody visited it in Winter? How's the driving in this wintry condition? Are we crazy to plan a trip there??? Thanks in advance for your comments, greatly appreciate your help

Oops, can tell that I'm becoming a desparado to get advice/comments from seasoned travellers I'm still quite new to this forum. I re-worded the tittle and have it over at the Arizona site and didn't realize that it would appear back here again.

The North rim (closest to Las Vegas) is closed in the winter. The South Rim roads are closed in bad weather, and it is a rather long drive from Las Vegas - certainly an overnight trip. I imagine the GC is beautiful in the winter, though!

What about Zion or Bryce instead?

Thks Gail. Yes, will be planning more towards Zion. Have got more leads in the other thread from others as well.

Zion and Bryce are pretty but nothing compares to the Grand Canyon, esp. when there is snow around the rim.

Ya, sigh, that would be a good feast for the eyes but you haven't commented about what kind of a drive that would be from LV to GC? So you've been there during winter?
