Alpine Skiing & Snowboarding
Minnesota winters are the stuff of legend. So what better place to strut your stuff than at Lutsen Mountains - Mid-America's Largest and Highest ski area. With 92 runs spread across 4 mountains and 1000 acres, Lutsen has continually expanded and improved for more than 60 years. Showcasing Minnesota's best features - the highest mountains, the most snowfall and the breathtaking beauty of the North Shore, Lutsen is Minnesota's legendary winter resort.
Take any ski area in the Midwest and you'll find there's just no comparison: Lutsen is far taller and larger. In fact, take any of the Midwest's bigger areas and three or four of those areas would fit into Lutsen with terrain to spare. Our lift-serviced vertical rise is the highest in Mid-America, and more than double that of other regional resorts. Lutsen offers 92 sweeping runs over four mountains, each with its own distinct flavor. Add Mid-America's only gondola, and you have a real mountain skiing destination with the true character of a Western ski resort
Eagle Ridge is the closest resort to Lutsen's base area, Papa Charlie's, Rentals, Ski School, and of course the lifts and runs. When you purchase your ski and stay package online, we'll have your lift tickets ready for you at the Front Desk.
There's more to a winter mountain vacation that just skiing or riding!

After a full day of playing in the snow, ski back to your studio or condo and relax by the fireplace, in your in-room Jacuzzi, or in the resort's spa, sauna or indoor/outdoor pool.
