We went skiing at Lutsen with Cassidy and Matt the other day and it was a great time! Guess we aren’t the only ones to think it’s a good place to ski.
Lutsen Ski Hill made the list of the Best Family Ski Resorts as the “Best in the Midwest.”
“The Midwest may not have treeline skiing and 4-mile runs, but its skiing is good enough to produce skiers like Lindsey Vonn. While states like South Dakota, Michigan, and Wisconsin are all home to respectable resorts that can make for a fun family weekend, our pick is Lutsen in Minnesota.”
“Situated on the scenic North Shore of Lake Superior just under two hours from Duluth, Lutsen provides 90 runs and 900 feet of vertical. With nearly 60 percent of the terrain being intermediate, it is friendly to all enthusiasts of all skill levels. If you don’t want to be on the slopes for the whole trip, there is plenty of world-class Nordic skiing in the area, especially if you head up the nearby Gunflint Trail. The nearby town of Grand Marais is a great way to unwind and enjoy some great food given its impressive restaurant scene.”
The list was created by www.familyskier.com, with input from a panel of ski enthusiasts, parents, and other ski bloggers. Key criteria included great skiing or snowboarding, a setting that was inviting to families and children, a long track record, and activities in the area for non-skiers.
