Winter in Dover

The amount of snow we get varies each year.  2014/15 was pretty light on snow and skiing at Schweitzer was not great, to say the least. This year we're doing pretty well.  We're plowed when we get 3 or more inches.  With the exception of Christmas and New Years, it's pretty quiet in Dover during the winter, although it's not deserted.  There are at least 30 families who live here year round.  It's also the time to see moose and deer, especially in the early mornings.

Dover Bay-Sandpoint Trail

There is a paved Dover to Sandpoint walking/biking trail that runs parallel to the highway but is separated by a land buffer.  This trail is heavily used by walkers, joggers, and cyclists.  In the winter it's sometimes plowed, but not consistently.
