Cross Country Ski Headquarters: The earlier part of the day yesterday was great for skiing, and conditions were enjoyed by quite a few skiers before the rain set in in the afternoon. It has been raining steadily all night and looks to continue throughout the day today. Because of this, and in order to preserve as much of the snow as we can, the trails will be closed today. Only the practice area is open today for ski demos.
