Minnesota’s Lutsen Mountain isn’t running out of its main product — snow — but it is running out of its season, and will send it off with a blowout of an entertainment event that the resort has named the Mountain Meltdown.
Spend each morning of the last two days of the season, April 13 and 14, on any of Lutsen’s famous 92 runs at what’s reported to be mid-America’s tallest and biggest ski resort. Then, get down in time to get dowwwnn!
From 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day, step out of your bindings, sit down or stand up and dance as four bands will take to the stages set up at the base, with a new group every 90 minutes. At 9:30 p.m., another performs inside at Lutsen’s popular watering hole, Papa Charlie’s.
It all melts down again on Sunday, with four new bands, plus barbecue and beer coming off the grill and flowing throughout.
Overnight packages for the period start at about $130 on-slope, and $107 off-slope, 50 percent off normal rates, with two days of lodging and lift tickets included. Check here for room availability and pricing.
