Ski Areas > US Midwest > Lutsen, Minnesota




  Lutsen is not just a good ski area, it's the only real skia area around really. It's almost twice as high ar any other area within a reasonable distance. It has a great variety of runs for all levels. Says Tom.

No other ski area for 920 miles has a more sky-scraping drop. This is a fuller-scale than average ski resort having lots of vertical feet compared to other mid west ski areas. This ski area gets covered by snowfall close to the local average every
    winter. The 1,088 feet of altitude difference is not that bad; Lutsen makes the most of it. Lutsen has scores of different slopes and an ok choice of good ski lifts. A fine workout and spending some quality time in the great outdoors
will have you returning for more. This ski mountain has an average ratio of demanding ski trails and an average fraction of green and blue slopes. With the skiing territory being 1,000 acres running out of ski terrain won’t happen. This ski hill gets covered by so much ice cold snow, 10 feet per winter, and that is an extraordinarily good depth. The 10 great ski lifts here will get you up the mountain efficiently. Having a total of 92 runs to ski on; there are  
ample runs for every capability. There are lots of good rooms to select from, but do reserve a room before heading out as it is a very popular destination. The snow covered peaks of Minnesota are a good place for skiing and snowboarding. Winter in the mountains of Minnesota and the kick of coasting down a slope are reason enough to come here to ski. Whether you're skiing or snowboarding, in this general area, you'll discover lots of ski hills. The snowboarding and the skiing in Minnesota is scores of fun every day of the winter.
