Trail Conditions: Good
Snow Cover: 8-12"
Date of Report: January 5, 2023
We received another 1″ of new snow overnight. The best thing with the new snow was that it was a wet snow. This allows us to pack it down and reset the base. With colder temps coming, this will set the trails up nicely.
We groomed both sides last night, hitting the most traveled sections. Groomers will be out every night this week to keep the trails in nice shape. They did pan out very nice, except a few corners that have been hit hard. This is the only reason I have not rated our trails in “Excellent Conditions”.
We have stayed out of the Cemetery Trail with these warmer temps. Trail Boss Chad will be hitting that section on Friday night.
News and Reports:
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.
