Overview
More
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.

I was blown away by the skiing at Lutsen Mountain! I live in Southeastern WI and was very hesitant to make the 8 hour drive to Lutsen, I mean you could fly and drive to a location out West in that same amount of time....More
