Grand Canyon in December?

I am just starting to do some research for a trip to the Grand canyon in December. I will, of course, do due diligence in checking weather conditions and comparing campgrounds, etc. I thought that since everyone here is very helpful and informative, someone might give me some hints as to where to start the research project and perhaps suggest places to stay and things to see in the area besides the canyon itself.

Roads on the North Rim will be closed, some very active snowmobile clubs in the area, there may be , snowmobile tours available. South rim access limited by weather conditions also. You may end up staying in Flagstaff or Kingman , and day triping in. Would this be your first trip to the area ? It would be a shame to get there and miss visiting, Bryce and Zion canyons, 4 Corners and Canyon De Chelly, due to road/weather conditions. National Parks Service web site may have better info on access in the area through the winter months. MHO, May is a great time to tour the area, desert plants in bloom and not too hot.

Obviously weather is going to be your big concern. It does get COLD up there. As long as you are aware of these limitationns.

Driving east along the canyon is awesome. Many people only do the part where the visitor center is. There are incredible views out along the east rim.

Sunset Crater is not far away and very cool. Recent (the 1500's if I remember correctly) volcanic activity and some amazing geological sights.
Meteor Crater is just down the (gag) I-40. Really an incredible sight that has to be seen in person to appreciate.
Walnut Canyon for Native American ruins.
Slide Rock...don't know how that will be in the winter, but it is a pretty place.
