Variety of terrain
8 hours of driving, more if the weather is bad.
This was our first trip to Lutsen and we had a great time. We stayed at Eagle Ridge Resort which was Ski In - Ski Out. The condo was really nice with a view looking over the pool area and Moose Mountain. We enjoyed the food and the entertainment on the weekend. Moose Mountain had the longest runs with some great cruisers. Eagle Mountain was much shorter but had steeps and bumps.
We went on Family Weekend but there were no lift lines and we were encouraged to sign up for the races for the day. They had slalom, giant slalom and downhill on beginner and intermediate runs. It was nothing serious but a lot of fun.
We also took a snowshoe tour along the river which lasted about 1.5 hours.
We will definitely be back again. It was not the Rockies but it was closer and much less expensive.
