“Best of Minnesota Skiing”
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.

“Best of Minnesota Skiing”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Lutsen is beautiful and often compared to skiing in the East. With its views of Lake superior it really is a wonderful place to ski and to enjoy the winter beauty. I recommend March for skiing as it is warmer then and too you can take in the snow shoeing and other many winter activities at the local state parks.

“2 dAY PASS”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

We love our ski and stay package, the value was excellent The conditions were good the trails well groomed and the ski area and resort very clean . Although on tuesday a lot of the lifts were not running, so you could get stranded with long hike to next running lift.

“Not sure worth the drive for skiing”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

#really dated, really slow chair lifts,
#grooming could be better
#closed down chair due to wind gusts, I was trapped at bottom of valley and hiked up to resort village. /There must be a better way to deal with these situations.

“Excellent snow conditions, short lines, nice people.”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

Started my day at about noon. But that didn't matter because of the great snow conditions, short waiting on lifts, and all the hills being open, was more than this old body of mine could handle. I skied, had the gondola ride, skied some more, had some beverages and food at the lodge, and then still skied some more. The views were impressive and conditions were perfect. Had an overall great day!

“Awesome”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

We had a wonderful time skiing and staying here. The slopes were much more extensive than I expected and was definitely worth the trip. Will most definitely be coming back!
