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.

Place is totally packed, absolute horrible experience. Spoiled snow boarder brats all over the place destroying the hills scrapping them down to bare ice. Extremely over priced, terrible customer service. Crowds, crowds, crowds

Have been here for an annual trip two years in a row now. I am a new skier and have taken advantage of lessons both years- hit or miss depending on instructor but still quite helpful. Lots of variety of greens and blues for new skiers with enough tougher stuff to keep my more experienced husband happy too.

The only day worth skiing is Saturday. Otherwise you can expect the absolute bare minimal of chair lifts running and forcing you to get off, halfway up the hill. Ski in ski out? Only if you feel like walking or skating 1000 yards at the bottom. 1 chair lift for Moose Mountain is horrible and not having a person on top of mystery mountain is a joke.

Many upgrades make this an ideal ski destination. The addition of the gondola and Moose Mtn restaurant with all of the new ski runs provide many ski levels for all levels of skiers. Favorite run has always been the Mogen as it is a gentle run with wonderful views of Lake Superior.

Longest ski runs in Minnesota and great ski terrain. Even has a cable car. The new Moose Mountain chalet is beautiful and very scenic...worth a cable ride to enjoy it. Could be icy because located off Lake Superior but views are wonderful.
