I won't say its a worst time but its not a best time either.

The best time is oct- nov when its not that cold and weather is clear.

Since its a off season so everything from hotels to stuff would be cheap.

A snow fall can't be predicted but I think you'll have a strong chance of getting snow on top of the surrounding mountains around Gangtok. To be able to "play" with snow try to visit Tsomgo Lake

That is the ideal time for viewing the himalayan peaks. It will be cold but not unbearable. Since, January is less crowded, you can enjoy the places.

The road to Tsomgo Lake will be closed in January.
