Never heard of any such trek yet.
There is Vasuki Taal trek from Kedarnath and Tungnath/Chandrashila trek from Chopta.

Bisuri Tal or Bishari Tal

Day1 Chopta > Martoli bugyal > Kiyar gad
Day2 Kiyar gad > Chipdowara Odiyar
Day3 Chipdowara > Thouli > Bisuri tal

OR

Day1 Sari > Deoriatal > Roni
Day 2 Roni > Chitray Gumpha > Bisuri Tal

In season it may be a easy trek but in winter crossing Bisuri Top should be a difficult task.Take to any guide at Sari whether they are willing to go there in winter.

I aspired for the same in Jan 2011 after a heavy snow-spell. Cab couldn't go ahead of Makku bend. There was perhaps 3ft snow at Chopta, over 5 ft at Tungnath (ground floor of structures near the temple were more than half under snow). Came across a bear at 15m distance, saw another couple of them at a large distance (100m maybe), a pack of around 20 foxes. In simple words, it was not a place for humans, even stupid ones like me.

Bisuri tal is a-lot higher, wilder and steeper with no proper trail (from what I've heard).

That being said, I'm still crazy and would say it may be possible in early winter, or a low-snow winter, but don't expect any local would agree to go with you, and weather would be extremely-cold, and not just a usual "extremely-cold" of common winter treks like HKD, Dodital, but a good 8-10 degrees beyond that.

It's usually a 4 day return hike from Chopta. In winter, I'd keep a 7 day schedule, and expecting to start walk from 4-6 kms before Chopta - absolutely self-sufficient. If I were in your place, I'd have gone there in summer for a recce. One experienced hiker can go for a first hike to Manimahesh or Roopkund in winter as the path is well-trodden, but Bisuri Tal not recommended.

For route information in addition to seaface's - there is another route to Bisuri Tal from Gaundar on Madmaheshwar route - used only by shepherds in summer. That also takes two days from Gaundar and is very steep. Around 1800m to 4100m.

And the biggest trouble with winter treks is that one may see snow condition when they arrive at the base, and it seems doable. They start the hike, and a couple of days later, they may be snowed out.
Someone else may have been lucky to have had clear weather for a week before they came, and another 3-4 days when they are on the hike, and start calling the routes doable for the winter in forums, when they actually are not.
