Cross Country Ski Headquarters: Spring skiing conditions prevail on the HQ trails, with fast and fun conditions in the morning until the trail surface softens up in the afternoon. Groomer Mike is snow combing all trails this morning. As usual this time of year, some icy spots are appearing in some of the heavily skied areas, so please walk out past the trail head to get started. Also, the Manitou trail has several ice bridges, so avoid it unless you are comfortable traversing sections of glare ice. Watch out for bits of debris on the trail underneath the big trees, and always exercise caution when skiing down all hills!

Today's lunch special is Rocky Mountain Chipotle Turkey Panini! Oven roasted turkey, Swiss cheese, chipotle mayo, spinach, onion, bell peppers and tomato, grilled to perfection on hearty grain bread. Great Lakes Chips and a pickle come alongside. Chili, cookies and muffins available as well. Ski on!
