travel to Shangrila in mid dec

I am planning to travel with my family (3 adults + 2 seniors) to Dali - Lijiang - SGL, then return flight from Dali from 17th to 25th Dec. Can anyone help to advise.
1. will it be heavy snow during this time? possible to visit most of the attraction places?
2. I am thinking spend 2 nights in Dali then take train to SRL (any other options?), SRL 2 nights then travel to Lijiang (take guide? or taxi?), then stay there 2 nights. Find transport back to Dali
3. anyone has better itinerary?
4. How much it cost if hire guide (come with transport) from SRL to Lijiang?

1. To my experience, it won't snow heavily. Some snowfall in SGl probably happens. Generally, your visit won't be blocked. Don't worry!
2. Your plan is doable. But you will visit so many places and have your family inthe group, I'd recommend you to join a tour. Then your travel agency will arrange all attractions, guides, accommodation and transportation for you. Do consider this!
3. I have no idea why you skip Kunming, but itself and the surroundings are also worthwhile. If you don't mind, consider taking the itinerary below: Kunming - fly to SGL - Lijiang (bus) - Dali (bus or train). Still, it is best to ask a travel agency to make a perfect plan for you.
4. A guide costs CNY350-500.

All for your reference only and have a good trip!
