With the weather getting colder, it's time to think about spring! The Cubs announced their spring training schedule on Monday.

Included in the schedule, which comprises 35 games (including five split-squad dates), is the annual split-squad trip to Las Vegas, this time for a pair of games against the defending AL champion Texas Rangers. There's also one night game. There will be 16 home games at HoHoKam Park in Mesa.

Unlike some past years, the Cubs won't play any exhibition games in major league parks before Opening Day, which is April 5 in Chicago against the Nationals. Instead, they'll finish up in Mesa two days before that.

Tickets for the games at HoHoKam Park will go on sale Thursday, Jan. 5, 2012 at 10 a.m. CST on or by calling 1-800-905-3315. The ticket box office at HoHoKam Park will open for the sale of individual game tickets beginning Jan. 17, 2012 at 9 a.m. MST.

Complete schedule after the jump. All games through Saturday, March 10 are at 2:05 CST; after that Daylight Saving time begins and all games are at 3:05 CDT (unless otherwise noted). I'll post radio & TV information when that becomes available. (ss) denotes an opponent's split squad.
