Trail Conditions: Fair
Snow Cover: 6-10"
Date of Report: January 16, 2023
Good News, Bad News:
Bad News- we are getting freezing drizzle right now, temps are 32 right now.
Good News- No sun to damage the trails. Most trails were groomed last night. It was a sugar consistancy. So, once the corners were pulled back in, it did pan out nice. Being a Monday, there is no sled traffic. Adding some moisture to the snow might help if the temps drop to refreeze the base. There is snow in the forcast for this evening into Tuesday. Then more snow Thursday into Friday. Hopefully it is enough to work with on the trails for the upcoming Derby Weekend.
News and Reports:
We have a spot that sleds are riding off trail. This is on Trail 3 where sleds are going past a barrier and caution tape to ride on the ATV trail. We don’t have permissions for snowmobiling on this private land. Please stay on the trail.
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.
