“Kids Loved it!”
Review of Lutsen Mountains

Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: World class scenery and terrain. The ancient Sawtooth Mountains rise 1000 feet above the coast of Lake Superior-topography unlike any other Midwest locale. And that brings more of what you want in a ski trip. More runs. More elevation. More epic days. You'll find the very best Mid-America has to offer-the highest mountains, the most snow, and the breathtaking beauty of the North Shore. Lutsen offers 95 sweeping runs over four mountains with a lift-serviced vertical rise more than double that of other regional resorts.

“Kids Loved it!”
Reviewed July 6, 2012

The Alpine slide is a bit expensive and after purchasing an all day ticket they closed it early and gave no refund or extension but the kids loved the time they had on the Alpine Slides!

Although there were not many runs open due to early spring, we had a great time skiing.

“Fun in the Mountains!”
Reviewed May 4, 2012

The alpine slide is a lot of fun. You don't need to be too adventurous to try it. There is a gondala that takes you to the mountain top where you will find a cold beer or pop in the cafe/deli they have at the top. There are also a number of hiking trails and a spectacular view of the Sawtooth Mountain range and Lake Superior. Best viewing of the mountains is during the peak fall color season.
