Minnesota’s Lutsen Mountains, the Midwest’s highest and largest ski area, opened for the season this past weekend and is offering lots of deals that run throughout the season, starting with the upcoming holidays.

Among the multiple ways to get a deal is through one of its lodging partners, including Lutsen Resort, which offers a great holiday package. Stay at the resort through Dec. 25, get lodging, lift ticket and rentals, plus $25 in coupons to use at participating local businesses, for just $71 per night. That’s a 50 percent discount.

Lutsen Mountains offers even more deals. Go to its website and choose deals like its half-price weekday package. Stay three nights Sundays through Thursdays and get three days of lift tickets to use its new six-place chair lift for $143 per person, based on quad occupancy, 50 percent off the rack rate.
