Trail Conditions: Early Season
Snow Cover: 12-14”
Date of Report: December 29, 2022
After finishing grooming at 3:30am, I will say the trails are in Fair to Good condition. The heavy traveled trails were mostly groom twice. The corners were mostly blown out with some showing the dirt below. If we had both grooming units up and running, we may have been able to hit some of the heavy traveled areas more than once.
A light freezing drizzle started around 1am and lasted maybe an hour. It made the last run down Trail 3 a little difficult as the snow was wet and sticking in the groomer pan. With warmer temperatures today, these trails may deteriorate quickly.
Weather forecast showed several storms lining up, hopefully that will bring us some more snow.
News and Reports:
The Cemetery Trail is open. I didn’t groom through there last night, so there might be some rough areas.
If you find a condition that you need to report to the Conover Sno-Buddies like a down tree, water on the trail, etc, either message us on Facebook, use the contact page on our website, or even notify a local establishment. They know how to get a hold of us to fix the issue.
A reminder to ride between the orange blazers. Along Hwy K West, there were several 100 trees removed this summer to place new electric poles. Most of the stumps are still there. If you were to hit one, it could ruin your trip quickly. Ride Right ➡️ Ride Safe.
