Winter Black Canyon

Based solely on the flows it looks like the Black Canyon could be done in the winter. Has anyone ever done a winter expedition?
Dry suit + insanity + committing run = fun
Plus look at the bright side poison ivy would not be an issue!

Running the Black Canyon in the Winter is not really possible due to snow on the ground. Doing the portages would be really treacherous and would probably result in injuries, and there might be ice issues as well. However if you go, let me know if my buddies boat is still sitting at the lip of the last portage(2nd day).

There is a serious lack of sun in that canyon at anytime of year. That, combined with the flat spots and I would assume that the ice bridges would be intense. Plus the portage would probably suck. Definitely post a trip report if you go.
