Trail Conditions: Excellent
Snow Cover: 10-16"
Date of Report: January 28, 2023
All trails in Conover were groomed last night, including the cemetery trail. Looks like Trail Boss Chad went into the cemetery marsh area and pushed some more snow into it. Then groomed it late last night. With the colder temps, this should freeze this up good now. Along with the colder temps coming for the next week, remember to dress in layers, and bring some extra supplies like hot packs to keep warm. If you have to ride alone, let someone know your planned route.
Trail conditions are excellent in the morning, but with all the sled traffic, can deterioroate quicly. They will still be in good condition, but corners may be pushed up and icy underneath.
Unfortunately, there has been a couple fatal snowmobile accidents in the past week. Please remember to slow down. The corner ahead maybe pushed out and is glare ice underneath. And when crossing a road or highway, always look both ways after stopping. Just because the first 2-3 sleds in front of you crossed, doesn’t mean it is clear for you to cross. Lets all enjoy the ride, to ride another day.
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.
