If I say name some ski destinations in the USA, you would probably say Colorado, Utah, Tahoe maybe Vermont and New Mexico. But would you say or even think Minnesota?
Since nonreving is always a challenge, knowing of off the beaten path places is a good thing.
So skiiing Minnesota might be a better option than you might think.
Located on the north shore of Lake Superior, Lutsen Mountains is the region’s largest resort, with 95 runs spread across four mountains. From the tops of these peaks, skiers have the vast expanse of Lake Superior stretching to the horizon, like a limitless Lake Tahoe.
Located about 250 miles north of Minneapolis, this resort is remote, when you get to Duluth, and it’s still another 90 minutes north. But snow is plentiful and they have a gondola. Maybe not the nightlife of say Vail or Aspen but for the die hard snow ski fanatic, Lutsen has everything you need.
Lutsen Mountains Resort in Minnesota is a prime choice for any Midwest ski or snowboarding vacation. Its four interconnected peaks rise above the North shores of Lake Superior to produce one of the most picturesque ski resorts in the country.
Known for its scenic glade skiing and steeps, and peppered with wide open spaces and long green runs, Lutsen offers more than any other resort in the Midwest region
The Chicago Tribune did a story this week on what all Lutsen has to offer.
