Lutsen has something for everyone! Let's get started, Lutsen has a great beginner area on Ullr Mtn as there are about 10 runs serviced by a lift. There might be a Magic Carpet or rope-tow too, not sure. For Intermediate skiers Moose Mountain is the place to be! Lots of Blue Runs off of Moose Mtn, and some Black Runs and a lot of Tree Runs too! For Advanced/Expert skiers go to Eagle Mtn. This mountain has a good variety of blacks and double black runs. They also put in a new triple chair a few years ago so it's easier to reach the Expert Runs. For a rugged/backcountry feeling head to Mystery Mtn. Great Food (but pricey) at the top of Moose Mtn, and for a more classical dining setting Papa Charlie's and Mogul's restaurants are in the base area where the resorts are.
