Full review

I moved to Minnesota after more than a decade skiing Big Sky Montana 70+ days a season, and more importantly, skiing the peak, out of bounds, the headwaters and in the trees. To say I had low hopes would be an understatement. A previous day skiing another prominent minnesota ski area was so underwhelming I left after my 4th run. The first day I hit Lutsen I brought a friend from Big Sky. The easiest way for me to explain the day is this: We were first in line at the gondola. We stopped one time at my truck to eat a few power bars. We stopped when the liftie said it was our last ride up. Apparently they were having an above average snow year. All I know is we found an almost endless supply of untouched powder in different spots on 3 of the 4 mountains we skied. Right under the gondola top shack is a pruned out tree run that even has a few hidden ‘keyholes’ that lead to hidden meadows complete with small mandatory drops. We found cliffs hidden in the woods. Carved turns down Moose mountain at almost 65mph. We billy goated our way onto a rock garden and dropped a few pillow lines. Ya.... for being in the Midwest, Lutsen is not only legit, it legitly huge. I’ve skied resorts out west that are half the size of Lutsen. Anyone giving this place less than 5 stars isn’t a real skier. It’s one of two 5 star ski areas in the Midwest. Mt Bohemia is the other. On a powder day, I’ll take Lutsen over Mt Bohemia any day of the week. While Mt Bohemia has bigger cliffs, and a few areas of steepish trees... Lutsen offers everything, including hands down the steepest groomed runs I’ve ever seen. So steep the cats have to tie off and use a winch. I can’t wait to ski here again after they almost double the size of it through their future expansion plan. Ye ha!
