Trail Conditions: Early Season
Snow Cover: 8-12"
Date of Report: January 2, 2023
So, with all the holiday traffic, the trails took a hit. I would rate the trails Fair to Good. Straight aways seem to have held up. Most corners are icy or down to the dirt. There was no grooming on Sunday, but the crew is back out Monday night. I took a short ride in the groomer as he was working Trail 13 and Trail 45 ( The D-Loop) near Bauer’s Dam. He was able to pull snow in on the corners and cover up the bare ground. Hopefully we see some colder temps tonight to set it up, but at 7:30 pm Monday, it is 29* outside.
The forcast is for 3+ inches of snow coming in Tuesday into Wednesday. Stay tuned for totals, hopefully we get more. Then the temps are suppose to bottom out. That should make the trail base good.
News and Reports:
The Cemetery Trail is open.
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.
