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.

We went in June, so took advantage of the alpine slide. We all had a good time (teens through adults), but it is a pretty expensive thing to do. Also, one of the people we were with wiped out and had some pretty bad abrasions....More

While many seek the highly packed trails, this gem is worth digging up. Hiked over 8 miles and didn't leave the property. Views are incredible. Also, great places to unwind after your hike.

This was the best skiing conditions in our 6th spring break at Lutsen in the last 8 years. I'm assuming the upgraded snow making the last few years has contributed to the better conditions. Crowds were mixed over the 4 days we were there but...More

Very nice hill with multiple runs! Good for all types of skiing levels. But it is a bit out dated. It is very scary as there is a chair lift that goes over the road which seems a bit unsafe but overall very nice place.
